Crystal Spelling by Dani DaOrtiz (Chaos Project Chapter 4)

Crystal Spelling

Dani DaOrtiz teaches you an impossible triple coincidence trick where three thought-of cards are spelled too from a thoroughly shuffled deck. The effect, Crystal Spelling, is easy to set up and even easier to perform. Now set up in easy-to-follow chapters of The What, The How, and The Way, learning the magic of Dani DaOrtiz is even easier than ever before.

The What

The deck is taken out of the box, and piles of cards are handed out to spectators who shuffle them. One spectator is chosen as The Boss. This spectator cuts off a small packet of cards from their heap and secretly counts the number of cards under the table, and remembers the number. They silently share that number with the other spectators, concealing the number from the magician. Every spectator with a packet looks at the card in their packet located at the position of the secret number from The Boss. The packets are reassembled into a complete deck. The first spectator reveals their card. The magician deals out cards, spelling the name of the card, and the very next card is that of the first spectator. The second spectator reveals their card and then deals cards spelling the name of the card they picked. They, too, discover their card! The third person reveals their card, and it is also impossibly located at the position the magician spells too.

The How
Right off the top, Dani teaches you the method to this incredible effect. This powerhouse routine requires no sleight of hand. You will learn a clever system and mathematical principles that allow the cards to be freely shuffled by your audience. Despite their free actions, you can spell to the selected cards every time.

The Why
One of the most powerful weapons of the chaos magician is the spectator themselves. In this lesson, you will learn multiple techniques to give your audience the illusion of control. You are actually using carefully defined principles of chaos and open movement to convince the laypeople that everything is above board. The true secret is that you are in complete control.

The Chaos Project is a year-long course in learning some of the devious methods and principles that make the magic of Dani DaOrtiz so deceptive. The fourth lesson is a masterclass in audience management. Welcome back to the chaos with Dani Daortiz in Chapter 4 of The Chaos Project.
