Music has an important role in magic.Especially Stage magic.The type of music is what gives your audience the sense of awe or excitement.Certain Music should be paired with certain illusions.(Example:D'lites=Fast paced music, Sawing in half=Maybe some heavy metal or creepy type music.)The music gives the audience a feeling of what to expect.Try watching a horror movie with out music.Its just not as exciting or scary.

What I do when choosing music is I'll ussually listen to a song, while going over what will be happening at that stage in the trick.if it makes me feel astonished or what ever the feeling should be,then I'll use it.BUT, keep looking at other songs.Maybe you'll come across one better,or more exciting.

I hope you liked the essay and I'll try to make more.

I liked it. It wasn't as long as I thought it was going to be, but got the point across. Good work.

Don't be nervous. It's a good thing that you're sharing your work with the world. And, with all the advice from here, you will become a better writer, and lose that nervousness.

only chris angel?

you're kidding right? ANYONE can use it (of course depending on your character). chris isn't the only stage magician with a gothic style about him.
