MemoryEffects.PDF Updated!

MemoryEffects.pdfIt's been a while, but it's back! My famed MemoryEffects.pdf document has just been updated!

The last update was back in June of 2009, before the current look of the site was even in place. Because of this, many of Grey Matters' newer readers may not be familiar with my list of memory-related effects.

As many of you know, I'm a big fan of memory work, and especially when used in a performance. Because of this, I began assembling a list of memory-related effects. I first published it 5 years ago this week!

The list is broken down into 4 major parts:

1) Articles - These are articles about different approaches to memory and mnemonics.
2) Legitimate Memory Demonstrations - Just what the name implies, of course.
3) Covert Use of Memory Technique - These are routines in which memory is used in secret, rather than as an open display.
4) Simulated Memory Demonstrations - These routines that give the appearance of requiring a trained memory, but actually don't.

In each section, there's the title of the book/effect/routine, a brief description of it, and then the original source(s) and the author. It doesn't teach any of the effects themselves, rather it simply shows you where you can find them. In trying to be complete, I can't say that all the resources will be easy to find, as some of the works are out of print. However, the document currently totals 69 pages, so there's plenty to explore, even with in-print sources!

The most updated version is always available both here on Grey Matters and over at Scribd.com. If you like, you can also embed the document on your site or blog, as shown below. You can also download as a PDF or a text file.

If you have any additions to the list, please let me know in the comments, and I'll include them in the next update.
