Hi Guys:

For those of you, who were unable to see me perform my version of the "Sympathetic Silks" on "Masters of Illusion" last night. He is a link to it on YouTube:

If you want to see me do a different routine on the same TV show, you can find a link on the "Finger/Stage Manipulation" forum.

Best regards,
Levent

I thought it was great. I watched it a few times, and I have no idea how it is done!

I was also absolutely delighted by the silk through the cane effect that (can't remember his name) performed on the same episode. (Also drooling over the quality of his silk fountain.)

It's fun to be fooled. It reminds me that I'm still pretty new to this. And that there's no end of effects -- old and new -- to explore.

I'm (finally) getting my Rice's Encyclopedias on CD tonight! Can't wait.

Hi Levent,

My six-year-old daughter and I caught your performance on TV the other night. She wasn't a big fan of your first act, but your silk routine won her over. It was really excellent!

The silk through cane effect is a standard effect that you can find in the Rice Encyc..

Dale does a great job with the silk fountain though he drives me nuts sometimes times dying all the special shades of silks for his fountain. I have been doing all his silks for probably 8 or 10 years now.

Thanks Daniel. The sympathetic silks is a very old effect and there is an entire chapter devoted to it in Rice's encyclopedia of silk magic. Some of my techniques with the effect however are original and involve some secrets that I have shared with only a handful of colleagues.

Speaking of Rice's Encyclopedia, I have owned and studied the set for many years. Yet I recently purchased the cd-rom version and believe it or not, I've installed the entire set of digital books on my Apple iPhone. I love having old magic books on my phone. So I can read them no matter where I am. We truly live in an amazing time!

I've just started clicking through volume 1 and I'm slack-jawed. I want to try every fold, steal, production, vanish and transposition!

Reading it is work, though. If I skim it or rush, it all starts to look the same. But if I really read a description, and imagine it, step-by-step, it starts to make sense.

Stand by for a million questions as I struggle through this!

Hi Levent:
Congratulations for that terrific act! Can you talk more about the "dish" bag that you use in your card manipulations on the first part? You make it ? Is available in the market?
Thanks,
Hansel!

Good job Levent, you are one of the stand outs on a lackluster series.

Thanks Dynamike, Hansel and Jack.

Hansel: if you are talking about the black bag on my left, where I drop my used props during the show. The story is that about 20 years ago I found a laundry bag at Sears that would hold my props on stage. Unfortunately it was a bit small and the fabric was bright red. Eventually, I copied the design of that bag and made a much bigger version myself out of metal, wood and fabric.

Levent

P.S. Someone recently sent me an email asking about the roots of my sympathetic silks routine. I told him that when I have some free time, I will tell my story about how I put this routine together in this forum thread, so that all of you can read it.
