Conjuring Credits, le origini della meraviglia

Conjuring Credits

Conjuring Credits e’ il nuovo sito di Denis Behr, prestigiatore tedesco, già curatore del sito Conjuring Archive, un database online dove e’ possibile cercare referenze di effetti su una vastità di testi.

Conjuring Credits lavora invece in modo inverso, da un attrezzo si puo’ risalire alle tipologie di effetti e poi a nomi di giochi ed infine ai loro creatori, questo per permettere ai prestigiatori di dare giusto credito ai creatori degli effetti.

Merita una visita!

What is “Conjuring Credits”?

On this site, the history and origins of magical sleights, plots and concepts are examined and traced back to their known origins.

How it came to be and who provides the content?

In the mid-1980s, Stephen Minch and Max Maven began keeping a file of their research and others’ into the history of conjuring. Desiring to share this information with other researchers, writers and students of performance magic, they envisioned a free website that would make this possible. Roberto Giobbi suggested that Denis Behr might be willing to create such a site and organize the information into searchable articles. Denis accepted the daunting task and took it further than Minch and Maven had envisioned, by installing valuable links to the Conjuring Arts Research Center’s AskAlexander and his own Conjuring Archive, making the site an extremely powerful research tool.

As the site was being developed and refined, Behr, Tyler Wilson and Aurelio Paviato added further information, and William Kalush and Dan Smith generously provided their resources, talents and time to the project. Wilson also volunteered to proofread every entry, along with Minch.

We thank in advance all those who will join us in this effort to document the history of theatrical conjuring, and we hope this select group includes you!

Please Note: Don’t take anything for granted. Research is constantly updated. Check the sources, look it up, verify the information! No site can cover everything, and this one is no exception. Use it in conjunction with other sites, such as Genii’s MagicPedia, Denis Behr’s Conjuring Archive and AskAlexander. And if something looks wrong:

How you can help!

What about those AskAlexander links?

Those links lead directly to the pages discussed in the context of a given article. Whether you can open the links depends on the membership level you have at ConjuringArts. Please observe that some links are not available at any membership level, due to reasons of copyright, and can only be accessed at the facilities in New York itself. However, the majority of works cited on the Conjuring Credits site can be viewed.

Principalmente sono io Andrea Clemente Pancotti: infanzia rovinata dai fascicoli di “STUPIRE!” di Carlo “Mago Fax” Faggi. Abbandona l’Arte per poi riscoprirla alla soglia degli ‘anta.“. Ora il team si e’ allargato, siamo comunque un gruppo di amatori, seriamente innamorati della Magia…
