Hello everyone!

My name is Clemens and I am living with my wife and the two twinboys in Berlin Germany. In my real life I am a fulltime trumpet player in one of germanys biggest Opera Houses.

I am 41 years old and doing Magic since 32 years. During my studies of music I was a frequent performer in a small night club varieté theater in Berlin. Ted Lesley was the stage Magician and I was responsible for the Bar and Close Up Magic. After Ted went ill I filled in for him on the stage and performed there for more than 4 years.

I won different national and international prices in Magic: Best Close Up Performer at the German Championship 2011, 1st price at Cups and Balls Competition NL, 5th place FISM Europe in Stand Up Magic and I am recently Germanys Vice Champion in Close-Up and Stand-Up Magic.

Since 2013 I attend Obie's FFFF convention and I am the organizer of Germanys only Close Up Convention the German Magic Symposium in Berlin.

Since I studied classical Music I am very specialised with rehearsing and practicing methods. My approach how to practice and rehearse Magic like a professional Musician I put into a lecture for magicians which I already held at Abbots Magic Get together, Denny's Magic Shop, The Magic Circle London and a lot of Magic Clubs in Europe.

I am very thankfull to find this forum and hope to have nice talks and discussions with old and new friends!
Thank you for letting me part of this.

All the best, yours Clemens

Wow Clemens, what a resume!!!

Welcome, how lucky we are to have someone of your caliber join our ranks. Personally I’m a huge fan of cups and balls. Can I find any video of you performing anywhere Clemens?

Gareth
PS that lecture sounds fascinating.

Hi Gareth,

thank you for your kind words!

Unfortunately I don‘t have my cups and balls routine online, but you can see my first performance at FFFF here:



That was the first time I performed that act in english 😅. In the first row was sitting Daryl, Shawn Farquar, David Stone, Bebel, Steven Bargatze, Gene Anderson, Dan Garett, Boris Wild, .... that was a tough experience.

Here is a short original sequence by me with a glas and a ball.



I hope you enjoy it!

Best, Clemens

Clemons,

Herzlich Willkommen!!!

I had the pleasure of living in Germany for three years and greatly miss your beautiful country. (That was more than 30 years ago and no doubt things have changed, but still...)

Glad to have you here - Thanks for posting your performances; I will take a look as soon as possible.

Welcome! I went to Berlin this past summer for a vacation. It is a wonderful place. I visited Fabiolus magic store. It was a great store with a wonderful owner. Do you go there ever?
