Vibrations is Luke Jermay's radical approach to what Annemann called "one of the greatest one-man psychic effects ever conceived" that will forever change the way in which you think about this now rarely performed classic.

Introducing Jermay's Sensational Psychometry technique that will allow you to provide insanely detailed readings, including specific information such as names, dates, places and more with no complicated reading systems, no preshow work, no memory work and no stooging. This is a professional performers dream; a fully scripted routine that has been tried and tested that will produce astonishing reactions from even the most skeptical audiences. Best of all; no complicated or expensive props or refills are needed.

Designed to be performed in theatrical settings such as stage and parlour mind reading shows Vibrations is a fully structured routine that overcomes the common problems within psychometry routines of repetition, generic readings and lack of climax.

Please note: Vibrations requires a simple gimmick which you probably already own and if you do not is simple to make or source and is intended for performance in stand up and stage settings.

"We know that this label is worn thin - but we genuinely think that Vibrations is a true master piece. If you know us at least a little bit you will know as well that we are not inflationary with appraisals and recommendations. But this one deserves all appreciation that we are able to give. Thank you, Luke, for this!"
- Rainer Mees, Thomas Heine - ParaLabs

"In a nut shell, Luke has produced a masterpiece... the only criticism I have is that it's grossly underpriced. Not that I don't want it in the hands of others, on the contrary, I want every one in the mentalism world to read Vibrations. I just want all to realize it's true value. Even if you have no desire to perform psychometry. This is a must read for all mentalists."
- Jon Stetson

"Very seldom in the life of a mentalist one stumbles across an effect which has the potential to start a religious cult. Vibrations is definitely in that category. Absolutely mind blowing. Jermay's Sensational Psychometry technique is simply brilliant. I can't wait to perform it. I can see standing ovations in my future shows. Thank you Luke Jermay!"
- Lars Ruth

"'We have before us an idea with unlimited scope', wrote Theodore Annemann back in 1935. Today, Luke Jermay has conceived a truly innovative approach to the classic psychometry plot. His Vibrations is not only ingenious, engaging and utterly convincing, it also retains the practicality of the original-but in a new and unexpected way. This is material of professional caliber, carefully designed and brilliantly scripted, one of Luke's finest creations ever. Bravo!"
- Marco Fida

"Luke Jermay always releases real work material and this latest release is probably his greatest work to date! He has completely re-worked the classic psychometry routine combining very clever and original concepts together creating a full mystifying act. This is something that will go straight in my repertoire!"
- Luca Volpe

"The most powerful theatrical effect in mentalism, in my opinion, is psychometry. The most important tool for a mentalist to be successful is the understanding of story and theatrical structure. Vibrations is a graduate thesis on both. Psychometry is the cornerstone of every one of my live performances. I have studied it deeply and broadly. Luke Jermay brings new ideas and synthesizes classic wisdom in a profound way that makes this required reading for anyone who loves emotionally impactful mentalism."

(This review is for Vibrations by Luke Jermay - Book)
Vibrations could have been an outstanding psychometry effect. But it isn't. Of course, any mentalism effect depends of the performer's presentation skills, but that's not the issue here.

The trick, itself, as Luke Jermay developed it, is excellent. And his instructions are well-written. However, there's a major flaw that rears its head after the trick has been performed. Yes, I said AFTER the trick has been performed. Let me explain.

Four audience members or spectators participate in this effect. One of the four has his/her item returned during the performance. So far, so good. However, after the trick ends and the other three spectators go to retrieve their items (weather as a group or individually), that's when the major flaw becomes painfully obvious. Modus operandi exposed. Game over.

I can't go into detail without revealing the method. However, even if the performer has an assistant return the items to their owners, the method still becomes obvious.True, Vibrations should only be performed before a large audience. Even so,spectators are not blind or stupid. If there is any way to avoid this flaw, it should have been included in the instructions.

I've spent $100 for an effect I can't use. For that price, this should be an outstanding effect that is absolutely bullet-proof. Unfortunately, it falls short.

(This review is for Vibrations by Luke Jermay - Book)
While I did not purchase Vibrations from Penguin, I did want to leave a review here because lots of folks reference PM for guidance.

This is not Annemann's "Pseudo Psychometry," (PP) by any measure. It is Jermay's take on the presentation of psychometric abilities. The presentation is quintessential Jermay. It is filled with his proven methodology and perspective of how to perform mentalism for a stage presentation. Viewed from the audience, it is stunning.

It is not for parlour, it is not for intimate settings. If you want to perform PP for smaller groups, seek out other methods of which they are legion. It is for a theater setting. Know that in advance.

However, if you are booked for a theater or larger venue, I cannot recommend it high enough. In essence, Jermay has considered the entire presentation from the audience's perspective and re-engineered PP completely.

The value of Jermay's take on PP is that you are given a new way to present PP in a very unique and frankly, convincing manner that only references Annemann's method briefly. The fact that it is expensive AND will only be performed for larger audiences will keep this method relatively exclusive. It is unlikely that many mentalists will actually perform "Vibrations" at all. But if you do, and you have the right venue in which to present it, it will certainly set you apart from other mentalists.

PP is something that I have studied in its many forms and can attest that Jermay has changed the rules of what it should look like. Jermay also deals with the inherent problems that Annemann's orginal text has for modern audiences, i.e. lack of a pleasing climax and audience boredom from repetition of returning items to audience members over and over again.

If you are seeking out a new way to present PP, "Vibrations" is your answer. Often, time is the judge of what magic/mentalism effects will be labeled as a classic. I believe that this will be viewed one of those classics.
