All of the music written by the Ensemble 101, a Parisian a cappella group, is free to download. Help us take it on tour!

The Ensemble 101 sings. They also speak, grunt, whistle, bark, snort, and chirp. Their music celebrates a multicultural, transgressive and transgendered society whose plurality is navigated effortlessly through virtual networks. Constantly mixing high brow and low brow, they have no scruples being simultaneously radical and reactionary through their recordings and staged shows. 

Pour nos visiteurs francophones : bienvenue et merci d'être venus ! Nous sommes le premier groupe de musique en France à se promouvoir sur Kickstarter et nous espérons être le premier à réussir ! Notre ensemble étant une association loi 1901, nos donateurs qui paient des impôts en France bénéficient d'une réduction d'impôt équivalente à 66 % des sommes versées. En cliquant sur « Back this Project » à droite, vous pourrez effectuer un don à partir d'un dollar. Le taux de change proposé par Kickstarter varie quotidiennement mais ne dépasse pas 80 centimes pour un dollar américain. Veuillez consulter la rubrique à droite pour voir quelques dons destinés à nos fans en région parisienne !

We believe in making our music freely available to all to download, and our Kickstarter project will allow us to take this show on the road for a Franco-Irish tour.  Your patronage will give us the kickstart we need to get everything up to show quality.  It will also allow us to do free workshops for composition students about creating music using GNU LilyPond.  Lastly, your funding helps lower ticket prices and draw in a more socioeconomically diverse public.

For fans of ringtones, check out our $101 reward!  You'll get a 4-8 bar recorded "tag", perfect for a ringtone or a cell-phone alarm.  Not unlike the one here!

"Amazing displays of virtuosity by the singers of masterfully creative writing!" - Stan Sanderson

"Super great madness. Love it.  As always, you seem to have reconciled absurdity and discipline, silliness and rigor -- a good place to live as far as I'm concerned." - Mark Applebaum, Stanford University

"Mind-blown every time." - Janek Warchol, Happy Nitpicker, LilyPond Project

To learn more about our group, please visit www.ensemble101.fr or follow us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/Ensemble101.  We hope that you're interested in the music we're making and that you decide to help us out!
