EVPs just in….

March 30, 2009 on 11:56 am | In Article | No Comments

I just received an email from AAPI (the ghost hunters) who did a program and ghost hunt for the library last October. They had had a bit of computer trouble, but were able to find several good EVPs for us.

I will be adding one at a time for you to listen to and review. You will need Media Player on your computer to connect and listen to the sound bites.

I hope you will find these interesting and if you find something additional while listening, please let me know. Your comments are most welcome.

An EVP is an Electronic Voice Phenomenon. Here is the definition according to Widipedia :

Electronic voice phenomena, abbreviated as EVPs (singular: electronic voice phenomenon, or EVP), are sections of noise on the radio or electronic recording that reveal sounds resembling voices speaking words. Paranormal investigators sometimes interpret these noises as the voices of ghosts or spirits.[1] Recording EVP has become a technique of those who attempt to contact the souls of dead loved ones or during ghost hunting activities. According to parapsychologist Konstantin Raudive, who popularized the idea,[2] EVP are typically brief, usually the length of a word or short phrase.[3]

Skeptics of the paranormal attribute the voice-like aspect of the sounds to apophenia (finding of significance or connections between insignificant or unrelated phenomena), auditory pareidolia (interpreting random sounds into voices in their own language which might otherwise sound like random noise to a foreign speaker), artifacts due to low-quality equipment, and simple hoaxes. Likewise some reported EVP can be attributed to radio interference or other well-documented phenomena.

EVPs have been referenced in a wide range of media: reality television series like Paranormal State, Ghost Adventures, Most Haunted, Celebrity Paranormal Project, and Ghost Hunters; fictional television series like Supernatural, Medium, and Ghost Whisperer; and Hollywood films like White Noise and The Sixth Sense.
