Wish to be a Magician? Drummond Cash-Coutts aka DMC Shares Methods of the Commerce- Shekhawati Rides


Drummond Cash-Coutts, popularly identified by his stage title DMC, was not too long ago in India to showcase the artwork and craft of magic to the viewers right here. On the sidelines of the occasion, he spoke to us about this distinctive type of performing arts, its timeless reputation as we deep dive into the world of mystique with probably the greatest within the enterprise.

How mainstream is magic as an artwork type?



It is determined by the tradition and the nation. I’ve been to the Center-East for exhibits and in Arabic tradition the phrase for magic is ‘sahar’ which has connotations with sorcery and spirit. The phrase ‘jaadu’ in Hindi is usually extra related to ‘jaadugars’ and pleasure magic. It doesn’t relate to witchcraft or black magic. In some components of Africa, individuals affiliate magic with witchcraft which is one thing fearful, darkish and private. That’s my view that I’ve gathered over time as I journey round. In America, magic is extra mainstream with the entire Las Vegas view of magic, the place the magician is on stage. In components of Asia and components of the East, magic is way extra mystical. It’s much less about being on a sport present or on TV. There it’s extra day-to-day and innate. Magic has all the time been there. It’s one thing concerning the human thoughts and I’m certain it would all the time stay fascinated with magic, what it’s and what it does. It’s attention-grabbing how every tradition interprets it in numerous methods.

How can one begin off being a magician?

The best technique at the moment to me is seize a deck of playing cards and go on YouTube. There are very gifted individuals on the web educating magic and quite a lot of it’s free. You possibly can study hundreds of methods at no cost. Once I was younger, there have been extra books and videotapes and it was much more troublesome to get entry to these items. The secrets and techniques now have by no means been extra accessible.

What are the challenges one faces on this area?

There are various unpredictable parts to magic. I’ve all the time believed that with many performing arts and artistic pursuits, professionally it’s a problem to make it your life. To do it full-time is all the time a problem. I all the time inform younger magicians that if you want for this to be your life then clearly find out about magic however past that additionally find out about enterprise, advertising, media and branding. These are the weather that can make it an expert success. If I want to make magic my life, it’s merely not sufficient to be good at magic. That’s solely the primary rung within the lengthy ladder of necessities. It’s equally essential to look into, as I identified, the enterprise parts that will imply hopefully in 20-30 years you possibly can nonetheless be very pleased and cozy doing what you’re keen on.

How is your act impressed by a spot you go to?

Generally it may be a narrative or a magician who would encourage me. I attempt to discover magicians wherever I am going and I like to take a seat with them, see them carry out and alternate secrets and techniques with them. I all the time seek out native magic. I could possibly be studying a novel or a narrative a couple of tradition, metropolis or a village and can take a small factor from there. Generally I’ll combine totally different parts from totally different cultures. Harry Houdini had an excellent ‘vanishing elephant’ phantasm. He would take a full-sized elephant and place it inside a field after which it could be proven to be empty. I’ve a small Ganesha idol, and after I carry out I clarify to my audiences the Houdini story after which clarify to them that that is the ‘vanishing Ganesha’. I place the idol on the desk and do some methods with taking part in playing cards. On the very finish of the routine, the Ganesha that was there, has vanished. I like to mix tales from totally different parts and produce all of them collectively.  

How massive a group do you’re employed with for a present?

For a present there are just a few dozen individuals. On among the massive stunts and shoot days, there can be near 100 individuals working with us, operating round and ensuring every little thing is the place it must be. We’ve a big security crew ensuring every little thing we try to do is secure, which isn’t all the time the case. We’ve had some accidents on and off digicam. On this house, coping with weapons, and different parts like hearth, water and different manners of risks, it doesn’t take a lot for issues to go very very badly. A small episode of exhaustion or inexperience and issues can go very very incorrect.

How comfy are you sharing your methods for a stunt with such an enormous crew?

The final rule is that everyone will signal an NDA. There can be a contract the place they signal that they won’t be talking about something. All people is on a need-to-know foundation. All people has a place and a selected position. Lots of people is not going to require to know the total technique or secret. A number of magicians give quite a lot of significance to the strategy or the key. However that has not been essential to me. There needs to be much more to magic than ‘the way it occurred’. On a private stage, I’ve by no means guarded the secrets and techniques. Right now, if individuals actually wish to study the secrets and techniques, it isn’t very troublesome with the web. I’ve gone far past the secrets and techniques.
