Hi Everyone,

Thought I'd share some clips from a new show VODVIL I performed a few months ago. For the show, we built Jim Steinmeyer's "Tocatta for Light Bulb and Paper Bag" and "Long Division". Both performed beautifully! Hopefully I'll be filming full videos of these pieces soon.

As always, feedback and critique is welcome... although a little difficult without the full routines.

Cheers!

Haha, I should say, both "worked" beautifully. The audience can be the judge of how well they were performed Smile

Nice clip. you look like you are enjoying the show, which generally means the audience is also.

Good stuff! I especially loved the Toccata. Did you build it yourself or had it built?

I did built it... with a few design tweaks, but staying pretty true to the original description of the effect in Technique and Understanding. The wooden frame was specifically themed to fit into the old-time, vaudeville feel of the show. Same with the Long Division boxes. And the Wakeling Sawing for that matter... lot's of Oak and Walnut for the construction.

That is a beautiful piece. that's my favorite effect in the book, the simplicity of the routine is just beautiful. Did you have to do a lot of R&D for the angles? If I remember correctly, angles are not much discussed in the book (though I can be wrong).

There was a lot of adjusting to get the routine right--both in performance and staging. Stage lighting should be carefully considered for maximum impact. And there are a few things that I had to change from the original plans to get it working.

Angles are not really an issue though, unless you're performing on a really wide stage or there's a super tall balcony.

I enjoyed your modern but yet classic approach to magic!

Thought I was the only one left!

Loved the clip. That's the kind of performance I'd pay to see. It's fascinating to see Long Division actually built and performed.

By the way, I counted 3 Steinmeyer pieces, not 2... I do believe I spotted "Hospitality" towards the beginning there. Looks like you built that too?

Nice to see focus on the magic part of the act...lack of dancing and colorful props was quite welcoming. Congrats and have fun!

Really loved seeing the Tocatta Light Bulb. It looked really special on paper, I've seen the Steinmeyer clip and some props but no other performances. Thank you very much for sharing! It looks so beautiful! Congrats!- Alex
