EVP stands for Electronic Voice Phenomena. It is the concept of attempting to capture disembodied voices of the dead with an audio recorder. In 1941, Attila von Szalay was amongst the first to try recording what he believed to be voices of the dead on a 78RPM record.
Konstantīns Raudive, a Latvian psychologist, made over hundreds of recordings which he described as being communications with discarnate people. Konstantīns later developed what we call today the Raudive Diode experiment where a microphone is replaced with a simple electronic circuit including a diode giving some interesting results.
Today we use digital voice recorders or Ghost Ark to make audio recordings which can then be analysed using a computer to examine the sound wave and the frequencies which contain the sound of interest. On our events we encourage everybody to attempt an EVP session. Our audio is examined by Tim Brown who has worked on Dr Ciaran O’Keeffe’s Ghostlands project, Sky’s Paranormal Misfits series one, and various other projects over the years providing audio analytics.
We use Adobe Sound Booth software for our analysing of the recordings. On each of our events we record hours of audio in the hope we may capture something of interest. Below are a few recordings from various locations where we feel we have captured a voice from beyond.
