If you haven’t picked up the November issue of Genii Magazine, go out and grab the November issue now! You wont want to miss Kainoa Harbottle’s in depth review of Temporarily Out of Order!
Here are some of the highlights:
“A collection of excellent material based on a memorized deck you should probably learn.”
“Temporarily Out of Order is an incredible introduction to Redford’s self-designed, memorized stack. I can sense the panic growing in Aronson and Tamariz fans (because I feel it too)….”
“Gems of technique or presentation keep cropping up in the midst of his explanations, which strengthen the effects as well as are readily applicable to one’s own material.”
“‘Twain’ is the revelation of two selections under very clean conditions. Since so much of the information is readily available for the performer, this effect really drives home Redford’s ability to milk a few moments into strong magic (see “Twegen” later in the book to find a variation that allows the deck to also end in Ace through King suited order).”
“…regardless of whether you memorize it or not, you will learn something from this collection. I think this book is a necessary read for those of us who are interested in the memorized deck. The ability to weave in and out of multiple stacks as well as understand their relationships to one another is probably the take home lesson, and the quality of thought put into what makes moments magical is worth the investment (as are the accompanying video tutorials).”
