110921 ek KAN NIE in woorde vir jou die belewenis daarvan beskryf nie! HEMELSàlewens-veranderend..HEERLIK! Dit is inderdaad 'n onbeskryflike ervaringà want Francois is seker een van die mees talentvolle musikante wat ek in 'n baie lang tyd gehoor het (en BELEEF het!)à verder is Francois se groot gedeelte van sy vertoning "Spontaan"à. Dit beteken eenvoudig dat hy die musiek "skep" soos dit komà. WOWà dit is soos om op 'n MAAND se vakansie te gaan à mens kom wraggies 'n NUWE mens uit sy vertoning uit! Hanli Steenkamp Gordons Bay SA

101120 Thank you for inviting me to the concert. I had a great time. The artist's performance was very spontaneous, as you described, and was full of passion. It seems that he made every single effort to convey his intense feelings through his performance, either by playing cello, keyboard, or by singing and dancing. Several pieces particularly impressed me, including 'Love at 16', 'Revolution in South Africa'. The first piece might be the most memorable one because it brought the audience to somewhere so close to nature. You could almost hear the sound of birds, wind, small creeks running. The audience was deeply touched by his performance and I am sure that the evening will be in many people's memory for a long time. zhuge yong Philadelphia USA E

100725 All the accolades have been used, Francois - I've been on your site
many times - so I feel limited in how to express my appreciation and
complete AWE of your musical gifts. Nothing I'd read fully prepared
me for the depth and inventiveness of your instrumental effects -
your improvisations, and then your virtuosity on the cello (nogal)! We're all still basking in the afterglow of your concert..

100522 I very much enjoyed your performance in Chambesy. Rare is the artist,
who dares to improvise, unfortunately. Your piano reminded me of
Leszek Mozdzer, the great Polish jazz-pianist, whose
Chopin-improvisations I love to listen. During your concert my mind
also wandered to Apocalyptica, the Finnish heavy-rock band consisting
of four cellists.
David Seligson Geneve Switzerland
100514 a deceptive brain massage, sometimes simple, sometimes devilishly clever. thanks!        
100507 Ravi Amazing - such fun! Our boy (in red dhirt) stood up and sang in front of everyone - he is one who hates music! Jenny Burton Berlin Germany
100429 Als we normaal een kwartier napraten over de voorstelling was dat deze keer bij iedereen het meervoudige. Iedereen was geraakt door zijn spel en zijn begeestering.

100313 Indescribable! Your music touches me deeply - thank you. Maureen Thelland Yzerfontein SA
100313 i cannot believe you play to such small audiences. lovely as it is to be part of one. thought how amazing it would be if, august rush style, they piped your music out over table mountain. there'd be less muggings, i'm sure. peace and love breaking out.

and hummingbird taking us to the centre of our sorrow to find our grief in all its colours. your music is SO sad - it has squeezed my heart hard in spasms of grief for all of history -- and her story --- and my story. and at times also transcendent and so powerful.

so - the story of creation could include your extra-ordinary dance against the projection ... dappled light on your body, you looked like a primal being, a jaguar, a hunter, and yes, a madman. i can see why some people don't connect it - it's far too powerful.

090912 You conjured up all sorts of emotions within me with your music, from feeling like lying down to be massaged, to sadness, to passion. Whilst you were playing these words kept going through my mind over and over again. IF MUSIC BE THE FOOD OF LOVE PLAY ON. !!! Diana Tye Swellendam SA
090828 Awesome - Brilliant to get onto another planet for a brief while! Thank you for a phenomenal concert last night! It deserved to be seen by far more people - we were the privileged, lucky few! Durban is always so slow and sleepyà You do amazing things with your cello, and your passion is almost tangible. It really was inspiring. Stavros Anthias Durban SA
090825 You are a live force in the vibes of our global creative moment.

Your role in this world - trying to show people how to be more than what uncreated life simply serves them - is an act you perform with a dreamy sort of authority that touches me deeply. Seeing you on your feet or with your cello is always a reminder to me that life can be graceful if only we have it in us to respond with the right emotional tact.

Your approach in examining the emotional potentials of whatever instrument you are at that moment entranced by is fresh, competent and exciting.

080920 It was one of the most electrifying evenings of music we have ever heard/seen/experienced. A lot of the time we were almost breathless, at others transported by hearing music as we'd never heard it before - just the first notes on the cello are enough to thrust one into a new world. Music has always been a vital force in our family - we all make our living - such as it is! - through and with music, so we are prime candidates for enthusiasm, as it were. I could - and do quite often! - go on about it but it's really that we want you to know how wonderfully you affected us all. Your 9/11 music had Julie and me in tears - not just easy weeping, but almost torn apart by despair/sorrow - words fail me. Pamela Blundell C Town S SA

080428 Veel dank voor de magische momenten die jullie op vrijdagvond 25 april in ons kerkje in Rheden hebben laten 'rondzingen'. Wij vonden het een eer en een groot voorrecht erbij te zijn. Het was enerzijds erg ontspannen, anderzijds zeer intens. Iedereen die ik erover sprak, had het gevoel getuige te zijn geweest van iets essentieels, gebracht door een groot kunstenaar (een muzikaal multitalent, heb ik ook gehoord). Ik kan die kwalificaties alleen maar onderschrijven. Ik heb enkele foto's gemaakt, ze staan inmiddels op onze website (www.q-marq.nl) onder het kopje 'laatste nieuws'. Mocht je ze in een betere resolutie willen hebben, dan stuur ik ze graag naar je. Rob van Bruggen Rheden Netherlands

071210 Goodness but I am discovering the freedom of the informal house concert
and the burnt CD. Made more money that a month of teaching last night,
with only ten people in the audience, just because I have a really wide
range of CDs available. And they are just burnt without artwork or
anything. So this really frees one up to communicate to anybody and not
having to worry about bigger venues and all that nonsense. So I am
starting to understand the freedom of Ha! Thankyou! Funny because I am
selling mrore CDs that i did when i had two impressively packaged
¦proper¦Cds. The long and hard road from snobbery to freedom...

quietens the pedantic's talk
stun the critics' socks off
makes the cynic cry
makes the sceptic believe
broadens the heart of the dispassionate
makes the feetless dance
makes the armless embrace
makes the shortsightedness visionary

the command over his sounds and silences is on par with that of the great conductors

050 Ambient sounds, from across time, across cultures, delicately interwoven, from earthy to ethereal, whimsical to dramatic, in the spirit of Buddha bar, unifying through a shared language of the soul, transporting into a space beyond the known. But, if Buddha bar is the gentle seduction of Europe by the east, Ha is a reminder of her lost roots in Africa. There are strands of sadness and longing. A fractured world. The struggle of being alienated from oneÆs roots. The title Ha captures the boldness and spirit required to regain wholeness. Clementine Mudie C Town S SA

0410 I really liked he unique sound and vibe from your playing. It was more than refreshing to hear and it inspired me. Anyhow I think most people really enjoyed his music and found it amusing and original. I could only describe it as oddly eclectic and often times punctuated with downright cheerfulness. Sorry for the poor description, but I'm trying to forget the music. (reason in a minute) It was more upbeat at times then I expected, and I wondered if it were a bit too much, yet I must have enjoyed it well enough...
