Singapore Lecture Notes by (Benny) Ben Harris

Ben Harris' first set of lecture notes from his first ever lecture in 1985— re-written, re-photographed...

These notes have been re-written and re-photographed. The material is bright, crisp and hard-hitting. Mostly cards, including a wonderful multi-phase OIL AND WATER routine that's a joy to perform. PYRAMID CARDS is an easy and visual stunt revelation that was originally created by Jay Sankey. Here are a couple of cool variations. COMING TOGETHER AGAIN is a real killer item based on a Sadowitz piece from Almanac (see demo video below).

The real highlight is the closer Ben used on both nights in Singapore....

Aarsh Shah
A'twist by Aarsh Shah

This is an ace twisting routine. The sleight is one handed. No extra cards or gimmicks are used! Just 4 cards and you are ready to go.

It is not easy, and it has some angle issues, too. But if you practice it enough, it opens many possibilities, as it is a one handed move, you can combine it with other tricks. There is also a visual variation which can be used for the ending.

If you love practicing as Aarsh does, you'll love this.

Abhinav Bothra
ABhyaas Change by Abhinav Bothra

ABhyaas Change is a fast and stunning card color change that happens in a split second and a small shake. Often confused to be done using gimmicks, it is 100% IMPROMPTU and requires 100% SLEIGHT OF HAND. Taught here are four different ways of performing this color change and three clean-up options.

[Note: It was brought to my attention that ABhyaas Change looks similar to Cody Nottingham's SOLE Change taught in his release Changes. Later, I found out that both changes are different in terms of grip, secret move, end position etc. It's mere co-incidence that they look similar.

Dyad by Abhinav Bothra

A deceiving card control + an intrepid card move = An audacious card at any number

AMBIENCE CONTROL : A single card control from the middle of the deck to the top. Originally put out in The Blind Faith Collection (2015). It can also be used as a phase in an Ambitious Card Routine.

SAY STOP : A Selected Card At Any Number where you don't really need to know the number before hand. Originally put out in Audacious (2013) and as a bonus in C.I.A (2015).

Notes and Credits: Do not confuse Ambience Control to be same as Bizau Christian's Blind Square. They both are different. Say Stop was inspired from Paul Wilson's Yamfacaan. However...

Sum It Up & Out Dated by Adam Hudson

A brand new approach to the ACAAN plot and an exciting way to reveal any spectator's birthday.

Sum It Up

A packet of playing cards is mixed and a spectator freely names any card from within. Next, a small whiteboard or notepad is introduced and the performer writes down sixteen consecutive numbers, inviting the spectator to select four. The four chosen numbers are added together, creating a final total. This generated total is counted to in the packet, locating the one card that occupies that position. The card arrived at proves to be the very one named by the spectator at the beginning...

Misleading Mislead by Alan Rorrison

The best pen through bill routine you will find!
(If you are interested only in the first penetration phase you can also buy it separately with Real Pen-Etration for much less. You might also want to check out the same effect achieved with different sleights: Driven by Cameron Francis.)

In late 2003 / early 2004 Misleading Mislead stormed into the magic community and quickly gained its self critical acclaim. However the full routine had been trimmed down from a two phase routine to a one phase trick by the company who produced it. Alan was very unhappy about this as all the hard work and tested moves that took...

Pulled by Alan Rorrison

The Linking Rings effect is a classic of magic and for good reason: a direct and simple method coupled with the visual aspect of the props have made this a strong hold in most magicians' working arsenals.

So what is wrong with the original that a new one needs to be brought forth? Well, here are a few small points to take into consideration:

  • The old rings are too big for any real world worker
  • They are too expensive in most cases
  • Large rings simply look like a magic prop
  • The routine rarely has any motivation
  • People simply get bored of the routine
Pulled solves all these points and...

Alan Rorrison
Final Wave by Alan Rorrison

The final wave is a very visual card routine. It requires what is typically called a 'bastard hard move'. I can therefore only recommend this effect to the hard core card experts who are willing to put the necessary work into this move.

Of course, if you like the effect you can exchange the difficult move with other easier moves, but it will be hard to achieve the same clean and direct performance without it.

I Hate Rabbits by Alan Rorrison

This is Alan Rorrison's semi-sarcastic reply to the dreaded request: "Can you pull a rabbit out of a hat?" This question has plagued close-up magicians for decades. Suffer no more. This effect is the appropriate answer and will silence your pesky spectators.

The effect is lovely. Get a card selected and signed (a truly free selection - no force), draw a top hat on it and have rabbit appear in it. Then you use a rubber band as lasso to catch the rabbit.
