Yes, there is a beautiful synergy when music and magic connect. The music always drives my work. We steal the form and flow from the musical motifs. The verse, chorus, bridge, hook and breakdown are there for very specific reasons. We can either fight them and lose or work in harmony with them, to create success. My process is always to try and see what the original composer was trying to say then attempt to bring that to life. It is a process of visualization. If you look at the most charismatic performers... Copperfield, Goldfinger & Dove... they all used this technique. Capturing the passion and structure of the original composition and bringing it to life within the body of their magic. The music provides the structure we can follow. In the best situations we lead the track to create the illusion that the music is following us. It creates the feeling of original music scored for our act. Yes, sometimes we are fortunate enough to have original compositions scored and recorded to follow our act... yet most of the time we are working to existing compositions. With the proper staging and understanding we can create the same feeling that they were scored just for us. Our connection and immersive link to the music is everything to me. It drives, fuels and motivates every motion,thought and feeling in my show. The joy in that intimate connection is everything to me. It is the joy that fuels everything I do on stage. I only wish everyone can feel that same connection to the composers to their tracks. We are sharing art on the most pure level.

I’m a music performance major. I’ve found that the disciplines overlap greatly. My professor encourages my learning mentalism, and teaches with the occasional mentalism analogy. We have explored greatly the similarities between the two arts, and my mentalism has influenced my music, and my music has influenced my magic. I’m also a Chinese major, and there are connections between learning languages, music, and magic. Many things have connections and similarities. My professor had me read The Inner Game of Tennis for trombone playing.
