Review: Transcendence by Peter Pellikaan and Alakazam Magic

[vc_row][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_custom_heading text=”Reviewer: John Teo”][vc_column_text]Peter Pellikaan is an underground magician.  Magicians start to notice this man through the videos he posts in the internet.  His effects are mainly packet card tricks that are quick in effect, hard hitting and very visual.

In the videos, his face does not appear.  He speaks with a very rough voice (like Rod Stewart in the singing industry) and always with the characteristic starting and ending statements “Good day, …” and “Thanks for watching … until … next time!” respectively.  His videos appear to be home made, but his magic is simply “out-of-this-world”.

Alakazam is presently making a master series of Peter Pellikaan effects.

In “Transcedence”, 4 spot cards are freely displayed fronts and backs.  They are then mixed face up and face down.  Instantly the 4 cards become all face downwards.  When they are turned face upwards, all the 4 spot cards magically become 4 court cards, which are again freely shown on the fronts and backs!

The change is super clean, quick and ultra-visual.

You receive the necessary cards in a carrying wallet, the gimmick, and an instructional DVD.

In the well-produced DVD, you get to see the face of Peter Pellikaan.  In the DVD, there is a tool-box that teaches you the master grip and 7 different card counts, one of which is the Eddy Taylelbaun Count which is used in the routine.

Peter Pellikaan offers a useful tip in the DVD.  He advises that you should make it a habit to always reset a packet trick before putting it away.

This is one of the most visual changes of 4 cards I have ever seen, and it not difficult to do.
