Alvo Stockman is known for coming up with BIG ideas with tons of real-world applications (Postmentalism, BFF, BOSS, Poetry Reading) and Singularity is no different!

Imagine the ability to seamlessly perform the Invisible Deck effect with any standard deck of cards.

Using a BORROWED, SHUFFLED deck, a spectator simply NAMES any card. You go through the cards ONCE and the selected card is ALREADY reversed in the pack. That simple. That clean.

For the last 50 years, the Invisible Deck has been considered to be the purest card trick in the world. Its impact is evidenced by the sheer number of professional magicians who carry one around for anything from an "out" to a show-closing standing ovation.

Now you can ALWAYS have the invisible deck available no matter where you are.

  • No need to re-rough cards
  • No need to buy or carry special decks
  • You start and end completely examinable
  • No awkward beats
Plus TONS of bonus ideas for this extremely versatile system.

ALVO STOCKMAN!!! Report this review

This is my little review for the singularity, by Alvo Stockman (obviously)
So my initial thoughts on this DVD were a little iffy, as were almost everybody's. The Demo really shows nothing, the product page is a little skippy, and it wasn't advertised as much as I thought it would. I remember hearing all the hype on the forums and everywhere else over it, and in the end I had to just trust my fellow Magicians on this one.
There are 2 demos up. One of which really is just a teaser, and the 2nd is an actual performance speed performance of the actual effect. I think the reason to show almost nothing is because there really is NOTHING to see. The most physical thing you do in the routine is just spreading the deck. That's almost all the action required, and it just looks SO clean! There's nothing more to be said on that
Now for the teaching. I have a few of Alvo's books and some of his downloads. I personally love his teaching style. He slips a few "uhhs.." and "aaaaands.." every now and then but it's really well thought out and nothing distracts the learning. Keep in mind though, that this is a VERY difficult effect to do.
The bonus section was amazing. It had pretty much nothing to do with the actual singularity effect, but Michael Weber is AWESOME. He goes through a really cool mindreading routine in full detail with Alvo. That runs for almost an hour. Plus, afterwards, Alvo goes back to the studio to teach some bonus clever ideas. PLUS, after that he has a full practice session with a really nice instrumental score.
Overall, I would rate this DVD a 4/5. It seems like the packaging and "inside" work lacked something I can't pick apart. And it's VERY difficult to perform and it's not advertised as so. SO there it is. Nice work!

Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 3rd, 2010
the invisible deck is one one of the most used effects in both close up and parlor magic. if your like me and dont like carrying around gimmicks then singularity is perfect for you. as you should know, its a non gimmicked version of the invisible deck. your not going to pick up the move in one sitting. its like learning the pass. takes you a while to get the move down, takes you more time to get it perfect fifty percent of the time, then takes you even more time to get it perfect one hundred percent of the time. people are going to catch you when you first start. thats all i can say. if you have the patience to learn the pass, then get singularity. if you dont want to carry round gimmicks with you, get singularity. if you want an amazing trick thats totally practical, get singularity.

Great thinking Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
Alvo is known for his fantastic thinking in magic. This is no exception. The Invisible deck has often been muddled down with improvements but this is the cherry on top. It is not something you will pick up in a day but it does give you the best out in every situation.

The secret effect at the end totally fried me. Worth the price of the DVD.

Too many 'what ifs' and sloppy teaching Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 10th, 2009
Invisible Deck is a classic.The fact that it is gimmicked is not a problem because the specs are blown out of their minds they dont think to check the deck. Singularity is the ungimmicked version and if you practise enough, you will get this effect and it will truly be a great effect to do in your shows.

HOWEVER

[edited to protect secret]

his teaching is great but it is all over the place. he uses these words a lot: "ok so i should explain that before you do xyz, you need to do abc" He has already discussed xyz in length before discussing abc!

Nice trick - too many what ifs and sloppy teaching.
Nice memory trick at the end tho

Amazing Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 29th, 2009
The invisible deck is arguably (definitely imho) the BEST effect you can do with a "deck of cards". Spectator freely names ANY card in the deck and magician spreads cards to show ONE card facing opposite--their freely named card!

Because I'm a purist, I could never perform this effect for personal reasons. I refuse to use a gimmick deck. I'd hate to have to come up with a witty statement that basically says "I only use magic cards" when someone with cards asks me to show him something.

I'm so grateful that Alvo released this and I cannot express enough how great this effect is.

WARNING! This is not self working--you will need to practice this over and over because the sleight is done while under fire. If you have the dedication to learn to pass a deck, then learning this trick won't be hard.

AMAZING! Singularity's value far exceeds the price and time required to master. This IS the impromptu, no setup, no gimmicks, no bullshit version of the Invisible Deck. Start and end clean. PERFECT!

Awesome!!! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 27th, 2009
This is such an awesome trick. i really got to thank alvo for going through the dvd so clearly and for 2 whole hours! i think it should be like 20 bucks but 30 is fine for me. He teaches you like 7 tricks with the method and a michael webber routine which is awesome. ADD TO CART!!!

THANKS ALOT ALVO

AWESOME Report this review

Disclaimer: I am a "move addict"

That being said, this will require a lot of practice. No offense to anyone out there, but a lot of you on the penguin forums seem to hate that idea when it comes to magic. I dont understand it, as I get great satisfaction mastering a hard move and making it look beautiful and graceful. In just one day, I am getting comfortable with the general move, but getting the move to look as good as Alvo will be hard. But that is what makes this effect great! When done well, no one will even think you are doing anything when BAMB the named card is face down in the deck. It really is that clean when done well. The bonus M. Weber effect is a great trick too that may open some doors for many younger less knowledgable magicians. Overall, this is great! I will definitaly put in the time to master this because it will definitaly be worth it!!! BUY NOW

Singularity! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 23rd, 2009
when i perform the singularity people go nuts! though im only giving this 4 stars because you HAVE to spread the cards the "wrong" way (from right to left)if you wanna learn the way that he does it in the video, you will learn an "easy singularity" in the easy singularity you can spread the cards from left to right, but its not as clean as the other. it says its a 2 hour dvd, BUT half of the dvd has alomst nothing to do with singularity. its a michael weber effect, its pretty awesome but im not going to use it.. if you really miss some hard training, then singularity is just for you! the dvd comes in a sleve(that sucks!) but overral this is a must buy for any magician thats serious about his magic. add to cart!

Ohh btw. the tricks that follow with the sleight of hand is probably the most hard hitting tricks out there! but thats just my opinion :D..
