Not sure if I seen this somewhere or if I dreamt about it. Anyway, here it goes. You perform a levitating women effect "Asrah". While your assistant is levitating with the blanket on her you whisk the blanket away and the woman vanishes and doves fly out of nowhere.

If anyone has seen this please provide info. A clip will help tons.

Well... perhaps its a bit of both...
Greg Frewin performed a very similar piece on WGM, where the girl floats, passes thru his body, then vanishes into many doves flying out of nowhere... The vanish is pretty startling to a lay audience... Lets see if there's a video...

Can't find it...
sorry man

I think I must of dreamt it but I like frewin's thinking, and the routine is nice, I didn't know he was the first to have a levitating woman pass thru him, looks a bit complicated, I've seen some other clip of a magician doing it but was much cleaner...thanks for the clip dave I enjoyed it.

Junior, you might be sitting on a gold mine. You should invent it. Dreams can come true.

Joesph gabriel may be who you are thinking of...he originally did the asrah vanish of a woman to a parrot that flew over the audience and came back then went into the parrot to girl cage and transformed back into the girl that originally vanished via asrah...he's been doing it way back since "city lights" so you could have seen it somewhere along since then...i hadn't seen frewin's version...i wouldn't want to clean the stains out of the gimmick from all those doves from them sitting in it and hanging out until the "launch"

Yes, the music. Does anybody know the piece and where it can be found?
A beautifully, magical effect. you can always count on Frewin.
By the way, Dan, I have become a HUGE Sperry fan!

You can fool some of the people all of the time, and that's usually good enough to make a decent living.
