Magic and Music: A Mystical Marriage by Shimpei Katsuragawa

 

Our first collaboration with Shimpei Katsuragawa brings to life his creative vision that is born from two artistic worlds: music and magic. In the article, Shimpei articulates his vision for how to combine both areas and the strength that can be added to a performance from this marriage. But, there is more than meets the eye when both areas collide, and who better than a professional magician and music teacher to dissect those ideas?

 

Magic Wands: Need They Have a Point? by Will Houstoun

 

Will Houstoun, our in-house editor, brings to us his first article about the real goal of magic and how we can see it: as an end in itself or a tool for something bigger. Between the academic world of magic history and the amazing project Breathe Magic, Will navigates the reader through the eyes of the children whose lives magic literally changed and makes you want to achieve something similar with your work. We all love magic wands. Let’s learn how to use them wisely.

 

Card Tricks, Beer and Orange Juice by Denis Behr and Pit Hartling

 

One more time, they are back with beer and orange juice in their full glasses! In this third installment of written dialogue between two great card guys, Denis Behr and Pit Hartling explore different subjects like gambling themed routines, the Gilbreath principle, the Stay Stack principle and the last FISM Convention. In the process, they even share some practical applications to create card miracles that are so clever you WILL try them!

 

Thinking Like a Physicist by Harapan Santoso Ong

 

Harapan Ong kicks off his Quarterly collaborations! This is an interesting piece that joins the scientific side of magic and the artistic side of science in seeing the parallel between thinking like a physicist and thinking like a magician. The similarities in problem solving approaches are very interesting to acknowledge and to learn a bit of how one can apply a physicist’s vision to create better magic.

 

Walking Down the Magic Way – Part 1 by Helder Guimarães

 

In this first installment, Helder Guimarães brings his analysis of what is behind the words of Juan Tamariz and his theory of construction expressed in the eternally classic book The Magic Way. Combining the content of this book with other approaches and philosophies, the ideas of The Magic Way become clear and can then be used as tools to create new approaches to magic. Let this ride begin here!
