Learning Close Up Magic - Dealing With Noisy Atmospheres

Any person working professionally as a close-up magician will sooner or later (probably sooner) run into performance situations that are less than ideal. One problem commonly encountered in establishments that hire live music is the band, or precisely, the volume at which the band plays.It is far from unusual that the music is so loud that none of the guests can talk to each other. Now this would not be a problem, let's say, during the last hour, when the party is well under way. I feel it is fine for the band to play loudly to dissuade conversations and get as many people as possible onto the dance floor. The last hour is a good time for the party to become more active and a little wilder.It is also a good time for you to pack your bags and leave. Unfortunately, many bands are in my opinion, utter amateurs who have no sense of dramatic build whatever, and who start playing wild dance music from the first song. They seem to think that all the guests came there especially for them, instead of having come to meet and enjoy each other's company. Loud music creates several problems. One of these (probably the main one) is that people's attitudes begin to change. They are so overloaded with sensory input that many close themselves off. What else can you do in the midst of pandemonium? Since you can not talk with others, you either dance or withdraw within yourself.Obviously, to reach people who have withdrawn from interaction, whose senses are already overloaded, you must be much more direct than normal in your approach. Otherwise you can never hope to reach them. You might as well do magic for the walls. This is definitely not a situation in which subtle nuances can be easily appreciated. Such touches will hardly be perceived by your spectators. It is a pity when the loud music dulls or eliminates the artistic details of your work. it throws a thick mist over everything you do.Another difficulty: In such circumstances your audience will obviously have a hard time hearing and understanding what you are saying, and given that they are already bombarded with an auditory overload, they will quickly give up in their attempts to hear you. This can be quite a problem, one for which we would do well to find a solution. And if you visit my site I have a number of solutions you can try. In reality there is not any single solution, but rather several.Each of these solutions may not be able to resolve the problem entirely, but when they are combined, you will find yourself able to cope with the music in most, if not all situations.
