afrikaans 140821 HA!Man en Joke Debaere inleiding Francois le Roux, oftewel die HA!Man, het 'n unieke en rare pad oopgekap vir spontane skepping oor die laaste meer as 20 jaar. Gedurende die 90er jare ryloop hy deur Suid-Afrika en gaan deur die slypskool van straatmusikant wees. Hy eksperimenteer ook met spontane dans, skryf, teken en teater. Vanaf 2000 voeg hy elektronika by en doop homself die HA!Man, om iets van die gevoel van spontane uitdrukking weer te gee. Hy bestuur sy loopbaan self deur middel van persoonlike "netoworking," wat hom dan ook op 'n dag, in 2010, laat optree aan huis van Joke Debaere in Antwerp. Hierdie ontmoeting lei tot 'n volle "partnership" en vanaf 2012 reis Joke saam met hom deur Suid-Afrika, Europa en Noord-Amerika. Haar agtergrond is die teater- en skryfwereld. 'n Gedeelde passie vir spontane skepping bring hulle op die verhoog bymekaar. Francois het 'n formele musiekagtergrond in tjello en kklavier, soos wat Joke een in teaterkuns het. Hulle optredes en werkswinkels neem hulle na honderde huise, teaters, konsertverhoe", skole en eetplekke elke jaar, en saam gee hulle ook 'n maandelikse aanlyn-tydskrif genaamd die HA!Monthly uit. Wie weet wat die pad vorentoe nog vir hierdie jy-weet-nooit-wat-jy-kan-verwag paar inhou nie!

Francois le Roux, oftewel die HA!Man, het 'n unieke en rare pad oopgekap vir spontane skepping oor die laaste meer as 20 jaar. Gedurende die 90er jare ryloop hy deur Suid-Afrika en gaan deur die slypskool van straatmusikant wees. Hy eksperimenteer ook met spontane dans, skryf, teken en teater. Vanaf 2000 voeg hy elektronika by en doop homself die HA!Man, om iets van die gevoel van spontane uitdrukking weer te gee. Hy bestuur sy loopbaan self deur middel van persoonlike "netoworking," wat hom dan ook op 'n dag, in 2010, laat optree aan huis van Joke Debaere in Antwerp. Hierdie ontmoeting lei tot 'n volle "partnership" en vanaf 2012 reis Joke saam met hom deur Suid-Afrika, Europa en Noord-Amerika. Haar agtergrond is die teater- en skryfwereld, 'n gegradueerde aan die Toneelakademie in Maastricht, Nederland Vir 'n aantal jare tree sy gereeld in Nederland en Belgie op en skryf sy teaterstukke vir haar teatergroep "Het Zesde Bedrijf". Die self-publikasie van 'n aantal poe"siebundels en verhale volg. 'n Gedeelde passie vir spontaan-vloeiende kuns wat spruit uit direkte ervaring bring Joke en Francois op die verhoog bymekaar. Hulle optredes en werkswinkels neem hulle na honderde huise, teaters, konsertverhoe", feeste en skole elke jaar. Hulle basis is net buite Stutterheim in die Oos-Kaap en 'n eersteling word begin April verwag.

afrikaans 120223 Paragraaf Standaard (kore) Die Ha!Man (Fancois le Roux) betower en verrras gehore wereldwyd met sy tjello, oorspronklike elektroniese begeleidings, klawerbord, stem en danse. Sy musiek weerspieel sy Suid-Afrikaanse wortels en sy spontane benadering daag konvensionele idees in beide die ernstige en kommersiele musiek markte uit. Hy het al vele klankbane geskep vir toneelstukke, films en poesie-uitvoerings en is aangestel as musiek-direkteur van die Suid-Afrikaanse "Woman of the Year" Gala (2001, 2002) en die "Ukkasie" Fees in die Royal Albert Hall in London, 2004. Bestempel as een van Suid-Afrika se mees bedrewe musikante en 'n baanbreker tjellis/skepper, opereer hy onafhanklik en reis ongeveer 70 000 km 'n jaar per motor. Die Ha! in "HA!Man" beeld beide die spontane aard van sy vertonings asook sy geesdriftige en inspirerende musiekstyl uit.

Sy formele musiek opleiding het plek gemaak vir 'n onkonvensionele loopbaan, beginnenende met spontane straat-vertonings, 'n eksperimentele fase van 4 jaar lank, 'n tydperk van ryloop deur S.A. en die eksplorering van 'n verskeidenheid vorme van kreatiewe uitdrukking. Tans bestuur hy self 'n vol skedule van vertonings, werkswinkels en kreatiewe projekte terwyl hy in kontak bly met 'n wereldwye netwerk ondersteuners d.m.v. nuusbriewe en 'n web-tuiste (www.hamanworld.com). Die wyer publiek in SA begin ook kennis neem, aangehelp deur 'n voorblad artikel in Rapport Tydskrif en hoofartikel in die Sunday Times (Aug 2009), asook 'n profiel uitgesaai op Kyknet se gewilde kunsprogram "Kwela" (Jan 2010).

Die HA!Man werk gereeld met kore en massakore beide plaaslik en internasionaal, veral in die vorm van koorimprovisasie en die sing van sy eie koorliedere. Koorimprovisasie is nie wyd bekend nie, tog wek dit groot geesdrif onder ervare leiding en ontvang dikwels groter gehoorreaksie as gekomponeerde werke. Kore saam met wie hy al gewerk het sluit in die Singkronies Kamerkoor, Colla Voce, Oos-Randse Jeugkoor, UJ Choir, Fezeka Choir en die Drakensbergse Seunskoor. Sy koorwerke staan buite die klassieke en kommersiele kaders en word wyd gewaardeer as oorspronklike en roerende skeppinge wat wesenlike eietydse sake aanspreek.

Veteraan kritikus Colin Lang som die Ha!Man-ervaring as volg op: "Algeheel is die vars klank van oorspronklike melodieuse skepping en polsende ritmes is uiters boeiend, so ook (die HA!Man se) aantreklike en ekspressiewe liggaamstaal en stem. Sy persoonlikheid toon iemand wat diep nadenkend, musikaal deursigtig en deeglik is, met 'n volgehoue liefde vir alle kreatiwiteit." Besoek www.hamanworld.com vir meer.

afrikaans 100201 Die HA!Man en Stellenbosch teologie
Francois le Roux het gedurende 1986-88 sy BA met lof aan Stellenbosch universiteit voltooi, met teologie en filosofie as hoofvakke. Sy pa, Johan le Roux, het self as predikant op Stellenbosch afstudeer en is na 'n kort loopbaan van 10 jaar in die NG Kerk aan kanker oorlede. Francois was toe sewe jaar oud.

Sy pa was ironies genoeg nie alleen die voorbeeld tot predikantwees nie, maar ook die oorspronklike inspirasie tot spontane musiekmaak, iets wat 'die HA!Man' tot spesialiteit verhef het. Die spirituele pad wat Francois geloop het vanaf 'n ondernemende predikant tot spontane kunstenaar, was diepgaande. Hy het in die proses 'n "driedimensionele" denkraamwerk ontwikkel waarbinne relasionaliteit sentraal staan.

Stellenbosch ken hom vanaf die dae as deeltydse orrelis by die destydse Studentekerk, waar hy ook sy eerste groot multikuns aanbieding, gebasseer op Johannes 1, geloods het. Daarna ook as tjelloleerling van Dalena Roux en lid van die strykensemble en simfonieorkes onder leiding van Eric Rycroft. Sy eerste tree as straatmusikant is op Stellenbosch geneem, 'n kuns wat hom vir sy eerste professionele jare aan die lewe sou hou. Sedertdien heelwat optredes by onder andere Dorpstraatteater en die Oude Libertas Amfiteater as die 'HA!Man.' Hy is ook bekend vir samewerkings, onder andere die hulde-produksie aan George Weideman saam met Helena Conradie en Annelise Wiid, asook eksperimentele werk saam die die Belgiese verhoogdigter Andy Fierens.

Die Centre for Christian Spirituality het hom meermale as kunstenaar genooi om op te tree. Die laaste geleentheid was in September 2009 in 'n klassieke program saam met Lara Kirsten wat self 'n unieke pad saam met hom, en ook as kreatiewe verhoogpersoonlikheid, geloop het. Albei hou by 'n dieet gebasseer op rou spruite en loop dikwels kaalvoet.

english 170121 HA!Man Summary Francois le Roux is a classically trained cellist and pianist, but his musical journey started at age three, started to improvise at the piano, stimulated by his father's way of playing by ear. Since age ten he served as a church organist and composed his first orchestral work at thirteen. His creativity also expanded to other mediums. A a poem he wrote at 16 was used as a central sample of youthful creativity in a doctoral thesis at the University of Johannesburg. After studies in philosophy and theology, he left the formal music environment to become the "HA!Man," fully devoting his time and career to the development of spontaneous expression (HA!) as an art form, based on a particular life philosophy, in order to restore and retain a certain vitality in music. Over the last 25 years, this path took him all over South Africa and then also internationally as he played and workshopped his self-managed way from person to person, audience to audience and place to place.

To categorize his musical style is hardly possible, but it certainly incorporates strong elements of classical styles, african music and modern world-music genres. HA! performances are never in a set order and the HA!Man thrives on making art in the moment, sometimes taking impulses given by the audience or simply the feelings born from silences. At the same time he is noted for the strong structural dimension to his improvisations which sets it aside from typical "jamming" or formless wandering often associated with "free" expression. His cello forms the centre of a stage setup that is supported by original and varied electronic accompaniments, keyboard playing, dances. conversation and more. Each performance becomes a spontaneous creation in itself as all these elements weave into a whole that moves and often bring audiences from all walks of life to their feet.

He maintains a keen interest in world and human affairs, having been shaped by the momentous changes in South Africa through the 80's and 90's Much of his work grapples with the relation - and the formation of relation - between right and left brain dimensions, chaos and order, Africa and Europe, nature and civilization and instinct and rationality. "HA!" actually invokes the "third dimension" of feeling which is born from the dynamic meeting point between these various opposites. In his workshops, this is facilitated so that participants discover the origins of creativity within themselves and within the flowing moment. His web site gives an account of the many types of venues he has performed in, distinguished appointments, commissions and residencies and various collaborations in different parts of the world. Consistently independent, he maintains a unique space of artistic vitality in a world dominated by expedience and the pressure to commercialize.

english 120123 General EV bio paragraph For the many who might not know about the HA!Man (Francois le Roux), he is a unique South African export product, taking his special brand of spontaneous music around the world each year. Born from an Afrikaans family he changed from theological studies to music at a time when the country was literally in flames. Regarded as a musical genius, he used his classical music background as a springboard to explore and develop a "three-dimensional" framework (HA!) within which deeper feeling and more direct passion can flow on stage. It took him a whole decade of hitch-hiking and street performances to hone his art which today forms a strong counterbalance to the pressures of commercialism. Supported by a world-wide independent network, he aims at empowering people at local level to express and share more freely, prompting poet Norman Morrissey to call him "a live force in the vibes of our global creative moment."

english 110821 University of KZN show and workshop The HA!Man (Francois le Roux) is back in Durban for the first time presenting an "independent HA! Show." This is his way of keeping his spontaneity-based art free from too much boxing-in, shaping each event along locally built networks and collaborative friends developed over almost 20 years of performing. Successfull independent events have sprouted already in Cape Town (Baxter Concert Hall), Johannesburg, Washington DC and New York City. The venue for Durban will be the Howard College Theatre at UKZN and the performance will be preceded by a short optional workshop for all those who want to release themselves in the spur of the moment, through music, movement, speech, writing and drawing. Durban has seen the HA!Man in tiny bits over the years, doing house concerts, exciting improvisational collaborations with violinist Anton Cawthorn-Blazeby, popular appearances at the ABSA Kolligfees in 2007 and 2008 and a host of school performances and workshops, including the KZN Youth Orchestra. But his scope is really global, circulating annually through four continents, honing an art form that brings much needed originality and on-stage creativity. On Sunday 4 September, the HA!Man will feature with his virtuoso and passionate cello playing, accompanied by original arrangements by himself, often with a potent story to tell. The idea is to establish an annual presence and build a cluster of activities around a the core event. It is not easy to put into words what the HA! experience is about, but the feelings it evokes and the inspiration it breathes is undeniably strong and personal. In the words of a recent audience member in Dallas, Texas: "incredible! unbelievable! an experience like never before.. thank you so very much!" Entry to both the workshop and show is free and donations can be given afterwards (this is to retain the spirit of spontaneity even when it comes to money). The workshop starts at 17h and the concert performance at 19h. Some guest performer surprises are quite likely too. No bookings required. Visit www.hamanworld.com
english 110208 Deeper intro Francois le Roux is a classically trained cellist and pianist, but started to improvise at the piano at age three, serving as a church organist at age ten and composing his first orchestral work at thirteen. His creativity also expanded to other mediums and a poem he wrote at 16 was used as a central sample of creativity amongst the youth in a doctoral thesis at the University of Johannesburg. After studies in philosophy and theology, he left the formal environment to become the "HA!Man," fully devoting his time and career to the development of spontaneous expression as an art form, a life philosophy and a way of restoring vitality in music. Over the last two decades, this path took him all over South Africa and then all over the world as he played and workshopped his way from person to person, audience to audience and place to place.

english 101006 Paragraph Standard 1010 Francois le Roux, a.k.a. the HA!Man enchants and astonishes audiences the world over with his spontaneous cello, original electronic accompaniments, keyboard, voice and dances. His approach challenges conventional ideas in both the serious and commercial music environment. A formal background in cello, composition and piano gave way to a career in spontaneous music making, starting out with cello street-performing, followed by an experimental stint of four years as he was backpacking throughout South Africa and exploring various other forms of expression. Since 2000 he added electronics to his solo performance set-up, creating a wide range of musical textures to accompany his playing, which reflects his Southern African roots and wider world influences. He has also since created numerous soundtracks for plays, films and poetry performances and his talents brought him distinguished appointments such as music direction for the South African National Woman of the Year Gala (2001, 2002) and the 2004 "Ukkasie" Festival's Royal Albert Hall event in London, being artist in residence for the Prince of Whales Business and Environment Programme in Cape Town (2008) and directing a festival concert to mark the 60th anniversary of the Voortrekker Monument near Pretoria, South Africa (2009). Touted as one of South Africa's top musical talents and a groundbreaking cellist/music creator, he operates independently, travelling about 60 000 km a year by car, managing a full schedule of performances, workshops and creative projects and keeping in touch with an extensive database of contacts through his newsletters and web site (www.hamanworld.com). He coined the term HA! to express the spirited way in which he conducts his performances.
english 100807 General Medium Press '10 Francois le Roux (the HA!Man) is a classically trained musician who has based his career on spontaneous playing. In his regular performances he makes use of his own electronic accompaniments, crossing musical boundaries into many directions, improvises on the cello and keyboard instruments, dances, sings and whistles. The word "HA!" derivies from the inner momentum that is garnered practising real-time creativity in front of an audience.

Le Roux was born into a musical family, receiving both formal training and encouragement to improvise from a very young age. His first piano compositions came at five, at ten he was a church organist and at eleven appeared as solo cellist with the Johannesburg Symphony Orchestra. Many awards followed during his school career. He detoured from music to do military service for two years and then a degree in philosophy and theology at Stellenbosch University. After an incomplete BMus (UNISA) he went on his own to give completely improvised solo recitals. It is from this that the HA!Man Show evolved over the last 20 years.

His CV is as littered with surprises as his performances are. Relying almost entirely on personal networking, the HA!Man show travels in four continents totalling over 200 engagements per year, including workshops, collaborations and creative projects. He virtually performs in any kind of venue, right up to the Royal Albert Hall where he appeared (also as musical director) in 2004. In South Africa he was twice appointed as musical director for the Woman of the Year awards ceremony (2001, 2) and regularly appears in various productions at the Grahamstown, Oudtshoorn and other South African festivals (in July 2007 he joined jazz pianist Paul Hanmer for improvised duets at the main festival in Grahamstown and has been a main feature at the Kolligfees in Durban in 2007 and 2008). He has shared the stage with various artists of note, including Sibongile Khumalo, Stef Bos and Steve Hofmeyer and produced soundtracks for numerous plays, dance pieces and film work.

Behind the artist is a person deeply affected by and committed to South Africa and Africa - a commitment reflected in songs like Beautiful Land and Her Time Has Come. He follows a natural life-style that includes a sprout-based diet and a love for going bare feet. He travels 70 000km a year by car. Visit www.hamanworld.com for more.
english 100118 Freewheeling Festival Francois le Roux, perhaps better known by his stage name, the "HA!Man," was a musical prodigy and at age ten already had a post as a church organist in Johannesburg. He was classically trained in piano and cello, but improvised on the piano since age four and has eventually decided to make spontaneous music the core of his career. Coming from a conservative religious background, he did two years of military service and finished his BA degree in theological studies and philosophy at Stellenbosch University. During this time, his outlook on life and on South African politics changed dramatically. As the country moved away from control by rational design towards participatory politics and the recognition of people's feelings, the focus of his music moved away from the deference towards composed works, to music that springs from the heart and happens organically in real time. The art was to balance structure and accessibility with the freedom of self-expression and inner feeling. From playing on the streets of Cape Town, this journey took him over two decades to many parts of the world with numerous performances each year, workshops for all ages and collaborative and inter-disciplinary projects. His cello playing remains largely improvised and he has imbued its technique with vibrant elements drawn from African music, a humourous playfulness and an emotive intensity rarely found. At the same time, he brings the structural solidity of a composer into the moment of creation and is intent on raising the profile of this lost art. Through his workshops, brings spontaneous creativity to people across the board, from corporate to townships to the disabled, relying on personal networking rather than external management. He has been artist in residence at a number of high profile events, including the Prince of Whales Business and Environment Programme and has recently directed a festival concert at the Voortrekker Monument, marking its 60th anniversary, where he introduced the notion to Afrikaners that a culture that can make peace with its own strengths and weaknesses, is a culture that can share itself with others.

His profile in South Africa has recently been lifted by major articles in both the Rapport and Sunday Times (biggest weekly papers) and a television profile broadcast on Kyknet's popular arts programme "Kwela."

Veteran critic Colin Lang summed up the HA!Man experience as such: "Overall, the very fresh sound of original melodic invention and pulsing rhythms is utterly absorbing, as is his attractive and expressive body language and voice. His personality comes across as one that is profoundly thoughtful, musically lucid and thorough and showing sustained love of all creativity." Visit www.hamanworld.com for more.

german 060126 Paragraph Standard German Frantois le Roux, der "HA!Man", bezaubert und erstaunt sein Publik rund um die Welt mit seinem Cello, origineller elektronischer Begleitunge, Keyboard, Stimme und Tanz. Seine Musik reflektiert seine sndafrikanischen Wurzeln, und der spontaner Ansatz fordert konventionelle Ideen in ernsten und kommerziellen Musikrichtungen heraus. Er hat zahlreiche Soundtracks zur Untermalung von Auffnhrungen, Filmen und poetry performances komponiert. Sein Talent brachten ihm bemerkenswerte AuftrSge, wie die musikalische Leitung fnr die South African National Woman of the Year Gala (2001, 2002) und das Royal Albert Hall "Ukkasie" Festival in London 2004. Als Geheimtipp gehandelt und als eines der gr÷¯ten musikalischen Talente Sndafrikas, arbeitet der au¯ergew÷hnliche Cellist und Musiksch÷pfer unabhSngig und reist ungefShr 80 000 km pro Jahr mit dem Auto. Er prSgte den Begriff HA! um damit die temperamentvollen Art seiner Auffnhrungen auszudrncken.

Seine Kariere begann er mit spontanen Celloauftritten als Strassenmusiker gefolgt von einer 4-jShrigen experimentellen Schaffensperiode, Rucksacktouren durch Sndafrika und ausprobieren verschiedener anderer Ausdrucksformen.
GegenwSrtig bleibt er auf Grund des engen Zeitplanes voller Auftritten, Workshops und Creativ-Projekten mit seinem Newsletter und nber seine Website (www.hamanworld.com) in Verbindung mit seinem Publikum und Interessenten
Sein Lebenslauf war vor kurzem Thema in zwei der gr÷ssten Wochenzeitschriften Sndafrikas (Rapport und Sunday Times) und in "Kwela" einer populSren TV-Sendung von KykNet's (auf Afrikaans).

Der bekannte Kritiker Colin Lang fasste seine HA!Man Erfahrung so zusammen:
"Insgesamt ist der sehr frische Klang von ausdrucksvoller melodischer Fantasie und pulsierenden Rhythmen schlichtweg fesselnd, genau wie seine attraktive und ausdrucksvolle K÷rpersprache und seine Stimme. Seine Pers÷nlichkeit macht den Eindruck von einem tief nachdenklichem, musikalisch klarem und grnndlichem Knnstler, mit einer nachhaltigen Liebe fnr alle Richtungen."
