In this video Fraser discusses his unique sideways approach to many of the classic techniques of Mentalism, covering his use of the centre tear within a close up environment under the guise of a challenge situation – explaining his Now Show principle, where thoughts are seemingly pulled out of a participant’s mind, without any visible compromise or drawn out process.
His answer to Pocket Writing he refers to as No Pocket Writing, Pocket Writing – where he teaches how to seemingly predict in advance, thoughts and details about his spectators, seemingly long in advance of meeting them – everything is hidden in plain sight and performed out in the open, with no actual pocket writing needing to take place.
Thoughts on Sound Reading and his never before released Mental Sound Reading principle, applied to ESP symbols. The spectator simply imagines drawing their symbol and the performer can instantly divine which symbol they are focusing on, or use it to get one ahead in a card matching ESP routine. This is even repeatable for the same group of spectators.
His use for billet switching and ingenious way of dealing with the spectator being left with a dummy billet when using switching in a Pre/ Now Show context – where he leaves them with a beautiful sentiment, written within a folded billet – they are instructed to not read until long after the show and only when they feel the time is right, to do so.
