Corporate mentalism this Thursday in London for a bicycle manufacturer. The latter had gathered his best customers in the London capital. Member of the Magic Circle, mentalist in London, I proposed in this framework several experiences of mentalism.
It is a word divination in a book presented as a prediction. These books are presented and the spectator chooses one.
The lady he chooses pulls out a page and gives it another viewer. The latter determines a word that he emphasizes. For good measure, he also writes this word across the page, and the lady writes his name on the cover of the book. While all these operations take place, one can see a tape recorder, isolated on a table, at best the stage.
Prediction with a tape recorder
I then explained that I was going to turn on the tape recorder and that they would hear something that would surprise them. But before that, a person chose a card among thirty that I proposed to him, and on each of them was written a piece of famous music.
This is the song Let it be the Beatles titles that was chosen. I then removed the tape recorder cover, turned it on, and walked away. We then heard clearly the famous piece Let it be Beatles.
The audience then confirmed that this is the piece that appeared on the map. No sooner had he had the time to answer in the affirmative than the music dropped, to leave room for a voice that said to you this: “No, but you have heard! Ask him if it’s good music! As if to happen to deceive me! Can you put yourself aside so that I see the audience ?” I then walked away.
” Good evening, ladies and gentlemen ! You listen to the only tape recorder thinking. I will start with the book. Madam, yes ma’am, I am speaking to you … You have chosen a book among six, have not you? I’m sorry I did not hear your answer. Yes ? Very good. Well, you asked to take the first one that you would like, but you’ve changed your mind a few times! Rest assured, it does not matter. You made the right decision by choosing how to become a pickpocket, is that it? The spectator confirmed. I hope this book will teach you useful things. As for you sir, you have received a page. I would like you to think about the number of this page. Look at me and hold the page in front of you. I do not see much of where I was and you’re far enough away … I think you’re on page 23 of “How to become a pickpocket”, is that correct? The spectator confirmed it. And of all the pages printed on this page, you have highlighted one, the word “astronaut”, that’s it? Well, I do not seem to have forgotten anything. Ladies and gentlemen, before leaving you, I would like to ask you to applaud my assistant, Madam – by the way, do you call yourself Mrs Bertrand? And Monsieur Nicolas is fine now is not it?”
This is what you hear the viewer.
These are some of the experiences I proposed during the evening.
You can also recruit me for a show of magic and mentalism for your evening in London !
