From The Mind & Manuscripts of Daniel Garcia

SYMPHONY contains five simple, powerful effects that are as visual as magic gets. Each is completely impromptu - no crazy gimmicks are required - and can be performed at a moment's notice.

Containing full instruction on VOID, VISA, JACOB'S LADDER, .44, and TIMELINE 2.0. Shot on location in Las Vegas, Nevada, with multiple street performances. Each effect was hand selected by Daniel for practicality, simplicity, and visual nature.

SYMPHONY contains tricks involving everything from rubberbands to credit cards to bills to playing cards - over 1.5 hours of detailed instruction by the man himself. Click HERE for the full contents listing.

What You Get

VOID

For the first time, Daniel outlines the full version of VOID - one phase of which was previously published in Magic Magazine - an impromptu method for performing the classic MISLED effect by Timothy Wenk (as performed by David Copperfield).

An ordinary drinking straw penetrates and melts visually through a dollar bill in a three phase routine that will leave your audience speechless.

VISA

Visual. Instant. Static. Attraction. You cause the magnetic strip on two borrowed credit cards to polarize themselves, being drawn together and repelled apart as if a magnetic field was present. Three phases of staticy goodness.

TIMELINE 2.0

Daniel's take on the classic Mystery Card plot. A card with an odd back is removed from your pocket as the 'prediction'. You have the spectator sign it across the back and it is placed securely into the card box - which is then held by the spectator.

You spread another deck and have a card selected. You ask the spectator if it matches the prediction in the case - but they find it has vanished. You tell them to turn over the card in their hand and it is the original signed prediction. A piece that Daniel performs on a daily basis. Super simple. Incredibly powerful.

.44

A visual transposition of two packets of four cards (as chosen by spectators). An effect that can be performed spur of the moment.Four Aces held by a spectator transpose with the Jacks in your hand... twice. Each move is taught in unparalleled detail.

JACOB'S LADDER

An effect inspired by Dan Harlan's 'Traveling Cash' routine. A rubberband is stretched around the fingers of a spectator. A bill is folded over the top strand of the band.

With a subtle flick it penetrates directly through, leaving it wrapped around the second strand. Another pull and it penetrates directly through. All can be examined.

Great stuff! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 3rd, 2010
The stuff in this dvd is genius, and easy to do.

Unless you can't do a little sleight of hand, most of the stuff here you should be able to do right after you pull it out. The tricks are strong, but one really needs you to have a friend to help you practice. At least two of these tricks have gone into my repertoire.

The only thing that bothered me (and made it lose a star) is the fact that a specific move is not looked into great detail on the dvd, and they expect you to go to theory11 and purchase the move for more money on their website.

That, and they didn't warn me that this dvd was only a preview of the tricks of the DG projects 4,5,6.

I don't want to have to pay for the same tricks again!

nice tricks but expensive Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
I think 30 bucks was a little much for this dvd, especially since timeline and jacobs ladder are the only impromptu routines i use. but having said that, the tricks on this dvd are outstanding and will leave your audience stunned.

Solid material! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 3rd, 2010
This has some great effects. With enough practice you have several great tricks on this DVD. The only one that I didn't really like is the credit card routine. To me that one was a little hokey. But the rest, I really enjoyed. Granted, some of them you'll have a hard time practicing by yourself because it requires a 2nd person to hold the bands. So either get a willing assistant or create a make sure rubber band holder out of a shoe box, rubber bands and creativity.

.44 and Jacobs ladder are probably my favorites on the DVD. Those are just a lot of fun. Jacobs ladder is pure eye candy. The melting effect of the bill through the band is just unbelievable! The reactions you can get with just these two effects are worth the DVD itself.

Australian problem.. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 23rd, 2010
Well produced and well taught with great effects.
Unfortuantely I can only give it 4 out of 5 as while Jacob's Ladder looks great it is no good in Australia!
I doesn't have anything to do with the Southern Hemisphere and magnetic effcts but the issue is that we have plastic bank notes and it just doesn't work.
Look forward to presenting the other effects though.

Big Garcia Fan. Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
I'm a big fan of Daniel's magic, and this DVD didn't disappoint! He's got a way of developing great impromptu effects which produce magical effects. Although nothing on here will blow your audiences away, all of the effects are worth knowing and having available!

Danny does it again! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 3rd, 2010
An amazing DVD with T11|Ellusionist Quality. Danny is the best teacher for street magic. He knows what works for a trick and what doesn't.

VOID

For the first time, Daniel outlines the full version of VOID - This is a trick to cherish. It's an impromptu penetration. Enjoy guys this with blow some minds and crack some skulls. Just watch your angles.

VISA

Danny's take one the magnetic coins but with cards. I really appreciate this effect is looks beautiful and with the right practice and movements you have a amazing effect.

TIMELINE 2.0

The card work behind this is fantastic and uses a really knacky move. Take your time and practice because this one seems like a camera trick.
.44

A great deceptive method for switching 4 kings and 4 aces. Something I will use when somebody hands me a deck and says do something!
JACOB'S LADDER
The finale. This is something to do right before Stairway from 5. It's 2 phased and looks impossible. Uses little misdirection and is easy to boot.

These are practical tricks. They aren't out of the box and require practice and care.

Overall, very good Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 11th, 2010
I got the DVD in the mail 2 days ago and practiced Jacob's Ladder like mad. I performed it for my g/f (who's my guinea pig for trying tricks) the next morning and it blew her mind the very first time.

This trick is so strong and visual, it's amazing. I am really impressed with Void also and will be practicing it a lot also.

I'll be making a wooden dowel rig to hold the rubber band for practicing Jacob's Ladder and a gripper to practice phase 3 of Void.

Timeline 2.0 and .44 seem like they'd go over pretty good also, I'm going to have to give them a try.

Visa looks kind of cheesy, but DG even says in the DVD that it's not a standalone knockout trick.

The BEST Impromptu Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 29th, 2011
Danny at his best, this DVD is packed with fun, easy to learn routines that you will want to add to your repertoire. This is stuff you can do on the fly using ordinary objects when someone asks you to show them what you got.

The quality of the DVD is excellent. Daniel goes over some performances multiple times and in different angles. The DVD also shows you variations not covered in the trailer, so if you should perform the same trick twice, the unexpected twist catches them again with added surprise.

I hesitated getting this DVD at first fearing that it would require difficult moves, but to my surprise, there were no hard moves at all, even for a beginner.

Each routine is powerful, and I would have gladly dished out the money even for one of them, I think that they're that good. I have to say that Symphony is one of the best DVDs I've ever purchased. Great work Daniel!

Everything is good about the DVD:
Daniel Garcia is funny to see.
Great Explanations
IMPROMPTU effects
Live Performances of Timeline 2.0, .44, Jacobs Ladder
The Price is Fair.


Except: not all effects have been performed in the public.
(The Void and Visa).

Note: If You Like Jacobs Ladder (and the other effects in the DVD) Then you will like the DVD FIVE by Daniel Garcia & Marcus Eddie too.
