So I saw this link from Martinka magic. I think this has to be the most pleasing coin matrix routine I've ever seen. Whoever this magician is has some of the best pacing I've ever seen as well. Slow, deliberate and he pauses in all the right spots. The production and vanish of the coins are impeccable. This video should serve as a lesson to all in flow and timing. Just beautiful.

I have a feeling it's Ryan Hyashi.

Always been a fan of the reverse matrix so loved the start of this routine, then fell in love with it all. Beautiful routine.

I've watched it over and over again trying to figure out how he gets all the coins back under the individual cards after collecting them under the top card, and although I'm sure he steals them out at the beginning of the phase I'm stumped as to how they get back under each individual card. His moves are so smooth and clean it's almost poetic.

The guy is smooth that's for sure.  And he's aced the secret move.

TBH, I found it very dull and pretentious. I gave up half way through.

So I've discovered who this is. His name is Hae-Seok Oh ( or Mr. Pearl) from Korea. Apparently he's a failry eminent coin magician there and works as the resident magician in a bar called TRICKS in Seoul. I found another video of him performing that matrix routine live and it's not quite as slow or 'pretentious' as it looks here. He's also in the middle of putting together a DVD on coin magic for release world wide. With skill like that I'll keep my eyes peeled for it.

It fooled me at first until I had the bright idea of watching it with the sound off. Somehow the sound is quite distracting. Believe it or not you can actually catch the method better if you turn the music off.

So in finding out info on this guy it's kind of led me down a rabbit hole. I found this video of him jamming some coin work with his friends and man, these guys have some fast hands. Although the lighting is terrible, there's some spectacular sleight of hand demonstrated here.

Very good video. Yes, the lighting is bad, but the effects are pretty clear. And they are obviously having a lot of fun! That's how the art advances, having a group of like minded people hanging around and just having fun.

It's a little reminiscent of the work of Armando Lucero , who is a wonderful performer and who I've have the great pleasure of studying with.

Here's one of his...
