This first installment of the “Professional Routines” series bring us a multiple selection routine conceived by Helder Guimarães and never published before. Nine cards are selected and clearly and undoubtedly lost in the middle of the pack by the spectators themselves. Audience members legitimately shuffle the deck as much as they want. The magician then proceeds to produce the cards in a fast paced and frenetic rhythm, concluding by revealing the last selection in a perfect finish. This routine was carefully conceived to open a card session, can be performed in either close-up or parlor settings, and doesn’t require the use of a table. After the routine is finished, the performer will be able to proceed with his card session with a completely n**m*l pack of cards in the o**er he desires, creating a perfect opening for m***rized deck work.

 

Here are Helder Guimarães’s comments about his routine:

 

“I’ve spent several years developing Crescendo. It’s one of my favorite routines, and I currently use it in my professional repertoire. I believe that the lessons you can learn from it are deeper than the routine itself and can lead you to discoveries in other plots you decide to work on. Crescendo incorporates some of the biggest lessons I’ve ever learned as a student of magic. As a professional, I view it as a solid piece that allows me to kick off a magic session at a high level and establish myself as a sleight-of-hand magician and performer. As a magic lover, I am involved with every single detail and ingenuity of the method and its possibilities.
