|Electronic Voice Phenomenon
Voice Phenomenon is one of the best pieces of evidence we can obtain on an investigation. It is much harder to
dispute this evidence especially when the EVP is found to be out the range that could be made by human vocal cords (300 –
3000 Hz) although many great EVPs do fall within this range. The EVPs can also potentially help us figure out the nature
of the spirit, the identity and more. Because there is so much more value put into a good clear EVP than
an orb photo or even an EMF reading, we should take the time to attempt to record some on every case.
Investigations with digital voice recorders can easily do audio recording on a case with no set up time so there are few reasons
why those member shouldn’t do this on every case.
History of EVPs
Thomas Edison said in the October 1920 issue of Scientific American that he was working on was working on a device
that would allow him to talk to the dead called a "SPIRIT PHONE" or as it later would be called "THE
DEAD PHONE", an early type of EVP recording device. However the credit for discovering EVP goes to Fredrich Jurgenson
when in 1959 he was recording bird songs in the Swedish countryside and on play back he distinctly heard the voice of a man
discussing nocturnal bird songs in Norwegian. He had heard nothing during the recording but many voices on playback, some
giving him instructions on how to record more voices. EVPs are also called Raudive Voices after Konstantine Raudive who recorded
100,000 voices in the 1960’s and 70’s. He published "The Inaudible Made Audible. The Association
for Voice Taping Research was founded in the 1970's in Germany, and American Association - Electronic Voice Phenomenon in 1982.
Methods of recording EVPs
all the time during the case or leaving your recording in certain areas unattended.
2. Recording at
specific times and asking general questions to the spirits that may be present. (recommended)
Class A - Loud & clear - interpreted
the same by all listeners.
Class B - Reasonably clear - interpreted
