Example text

Traditional misdirection relies to a degree on dis­ tracting the spectator's attention. " Chances are excellent that the people in the room will stampede to , . THE HAND IS SlVIARTER THAN THE EYE Q 21 the window to see the mysterious object. Note that you didn't direct your comment to anyone in particular. But you created sudden interest by your remark and thus created a distraction sufficient to cause a crowd to gather. " Thus, while the magician's right hand plucks a card from the air, his left hand secretly palms another card .

Thus you must play the part, act serious, and direct all attention to the proper mood. Thus you begin by asking the spectator if he likes music, what kind he enjoys most, his favorite composer, and so on. Obviously the composer can no longer be alive. This means that the spectator will choose a famous but long deceased composer like Beethoven or Bach. This works to your advantage in two ways. First, it re­ lieves you of the task of trying to duplicate contemporary music with such crude implements as a glass, a string, and a pencil.

Grasp glasses A and B, one in each hand, and turn them over. Then cross your arms, grasp glass A with the right hand and glass C with the left hand, and turn these two glasses over. Finally, grasp glass A with the left hand and glass B with the right hand . Turn these two glasses over and stop . All three glasses will be mouth down, as indicated in figure 69. It is now the spectator's turn. Turn the center glass (B) over so you match the positions in figure 70. Repeat the conditions : in three moves, turning over a pair of glasses on each move, the spectator must cause all three glasses to turn mouth down, just as you did.
