Yes, you are reading this correctly! With Pete's latest work done under the 13 Souls Productions,
what you are getting when purchasing the newer material is actually supremely better than any of his
past releases. Here's why I say this.
1. Less Tangents! I know many people love those
Turner tangents, but its rather difficult to learn the past material because Peter didn't always
stay on topic. Here, you get tangents but they are structured to the point where everything he says
is very valuable to the routine itself.
2. More Variations! Because Its done under Pete's
control, you get more than 10 routines, you can a bunch of principles, stuff you didn't realize you
would need or want to know. I would say, because it seems like Pete or his friends would repeat
themselves, LISTEN! Yes, listen to everything. Just when you think you know how its done, Pete goes
off into a variation of how to do it a different way.
3. Refined Techniques! If you owned
Pete's earlier work, you were thus following him on a journey into the guy that is able to produce
materials such as this. While the material was good, the material you get here has matured and some
of it is completely brand new.
The question now becomes will you use the material on here?
The answer is yes. In one form or another. I think having followed Pete's journey all this
time, I used to use the material as he presented it. With my own maturation, I've learned to take
what I like and use it in my own way.
So what I'm saying it some of the material you will
use as is. Some you will be able to alter and customize things for routines or other plots you may
have. The gold in this project is the principles as play. If you don't like the effect as Pete does
it, remember the principles that allow him to achieve what he does. If you are able to do that, then
you will be set. Routines are all about choreography. But principles allow you to elevate what you
Getting back to why I say this is like having a magic consultant with you because you
get the feeling that you are the one collaborating with Pete the entire time. He will show you a way
to do the routine, and then show you about 3 or 4 variations, and then openly tell you to use
certain aspects in the manner that you may already be comfortable with.
Trust me, you are
getting more than 10 effects.
If I were you, I wouldn't treat Peter's instructions as a
step by step process (though he does do that). I would treat his instructions as though as you are
ready a book. Listen to him (preferably on headphones) all the way through. Then go back and refer
to parts you may have missed, just as you would a book. Skipping about is the worst way to digest
his material because he's always giving instruction. I make it a point that this is more instruction
and less tangent based. Which makes this project one of his better projects.
emphasizes scripts, the effects included are not script-heavy. Just because Peter could talk an hour
for one effect, doesn't mean you have to do the same, as like much of his past work is script heavy,
this and his later works are a lot more mechanical.
Oh, the effects?
thing separates you from Peter Turner. Is it impossible? No. Can you do it? Maybe. I'm serious. Some
of you might not be able to do this because of what it takes to do this. But, you might be able to
do something else mentioned. The original use for it. The good part is you aren't Peter Turner so
you will know other ways of doing this. This I can promise!
OUT OF MY MIND: This thing is
powerful and you will thoroughly enjoy it. Peter fixes a problem that routines like this typically
have. So you will love it!
Q+A: THE highlight of the project. Man, this is an impromptu
Q&A. The best part about it is you don't have to do Q&A. You can use this as a group mindreading.
Think Lewis LeVal's Art Of Knowing but faster. It's easily customizable. You can reveal anything.
MAGAZINE TEST: I don't do a ton of book test stuff. But the principles you learn in this is
golden. Was this my favorite effect? No. But You can learn a lot by taking the principles in this
and using them elsewhere. But then again, you aren't me. You just make love it.
COINCIDENCE: This thing is Derren Brown-esque. There are multiple ways to do it. A Purely
Psychological method and a Mechanical method. It doesn't matter because the impact is literally the
same. I am very glad Pete decided to include both versions.
TRILOGY: Pete is someone of a
humble liar. That's a compliment. For a guy who claims he isn't good with cards, sure does know how
to do some hard-hitting card mentalism. This thing packs a punch!
KNOWLEDGE: When you learn
it, you will smile. Because with enough thinking, you will be able to customize this for a routine
of your own or use the principle to achieve something else. But while Pete may figure this as a
throw-away effect, it got Fraser Parker good. Fraser replied, "You cheeky bastard" (something along
those lines) which when you learn the method, you will say, "I could've thought of that!"
THE MYSTERY OF THE MESSAGE: It's a good routine. The setup seems overwhelming at first, but once
you get it, you are set. What Pete has done is built a system to do a variant of some of his best
routines such as star signs divinations and D.O.B. reveals, all together under one roof without off
the mental gymnastics. When put together, you will be able to (I say) close out a performance with
SHOPPED: If you are married or involved and you live together, this is the routine to
do on the wife/girlfriend. Unless they too are a magician. Is it a magician fooler? No. Is it a
wife/girlfriend fooler? I'd say so. Unless they too are a magician.
What you get here are
great routines, but the education from the principles alone is valuable.
For those who own
much of Pete's older work, the question you may have in mind (see I'm a mindreader as well)is:
Is there any overlap?
No! As a guy who has pretty much everything he has put out and as
a guy who has spoken with him on occasions (though not a Peter Turner fanboy in case you are
wondering), this is fresh material. The premises might be similar, and the principles used could be
similar. But the routines are completely different from past stuff.
You will be familiar
with some principles if you are a fan of his work, but the variants of the effects are something you
probably won't be familiar with.
I feel I have to point out that I know of Pete and though
I have all his stuff, I am not a person you could label his "worshipper" as some in the cafe might
label others. I'm just a guy who enjoys great concepts and principles, and you would be doing
yourself a disservice if you didn't purchase this product.
