Electronic Voice Phenomena
Electronic Voice Phenomena or EVP for short, is the collection of audio signals on recording devices, while at the same time not being heard with the human ear. The following files present some of our more interesting findings. Best heard using headphones, please reduce volume before playing, then adjust to comfortable level.
Use of headphones recommended to hear these EVPs.
This voice was captured in the main hallway of an office complex undergoing renovation. Past tenants complained of feelings of being watched when no-one was there and other uncomfortable feelings. My meters were not picking anything up other than high electro-magnetic fields, all man-made. I was going to replace a battery in a dead meter when I picked up this voice. I am not sure if it is in English or some other language. It is for you to decide.
Tucson's Old Courthouse
This was our first EVP captured in the basement of the Old Courthouse. We think it is self-explanatory.
After receiving our first EVP in the basement, we returned later and obtained another demand to leave.
Returning to the basement once again, I was receiving no responses to any of my questions but one, "why won't anyone talk with me?" Is this why? Note: this file is repeated 3 times.
This file is just an unusual sound picked after asking the "ghost" if I could take its picture. Nothing presented itself in the photograph. Note: this file is repeated 3 times.
In our investigation of this 1800's cemetery for children, we were not finding much paranormal activity. At the time of this recording we were standing about 25 feet away from the recorder an neither of us heard any such sound.
This file was another voice we picked up but did not hear with our own ears, again we were about 25 feet from the recorder but walking towards it. Note: this file is repeated 3 times.
The Stanley Hotel's Manor House
Inside the Manor house at The Stanley Hotel. Kris Williams was leading the EVP session. Audio was recorded on my Zoom H4N, ran through Audacity freeware, and amplified to bring out the response.
The Stanley Hotel 4th Floor
During the night, a few of us got together in this hallway to call on the spirits of the children said to haunt this area. My friend Chris called to a spirit he had connected with the night before, and asked if she would like to play again. The following EVP has been amplified to hear the childs voice. Suprisingly another voice is heard in the background.
The term Instrumental Trans-Communication (ITC) was named by Ernst Senkowski during the 1970s. ITC refers to the usage of electronic devices to capture spirit voices, or to communicate with spirits or ghosts. Items such as digital or tape recorders, video cameras, even microphones with amplifiers may be used for such purposes. The difference between ITC and EVP is that during EVP sessions, the voices are not heard aurally.
The following example of ITC was taken at The Black Swan Inn in San Antonio, Texas on the morning of Monday February 22, 2010 at around 12:30am. The voice of 6 year old ghost Sophie was heard by nearly 50 people present, listening through a device invented by Andy Coppock, (http://liveparanormal.com/Andy_Coppock). The buzzing sound you will hear is the "frequency" or "channel" the spirit energy uses to interact. This is the same signal the Electro-Magnetic Frequency (EMF) meters use to detect potential paranormal activity. The signal had been converted into sound, and provided for direct interaction between ourselves and the other side.
