Electronic Voice Phenomena (evp)


The first reported electronic voice phenomena was in June 1959 by Friedrich Jurgenson. After playing back birdsong in the Swedish countryside, it is said that he noticed the presence of a faint Norwegian voice talking about bird song. Jurgenson assumed that this could have been voices from a radio station, and therefore prompted him to make further recordings.

According to Jurgenson his further recordings showed that the voices he was recording, were actually communicating with him and knew him by name and were able to tell him when the telephone was going to ring.

Since Jurgensons report many people across the world have experimented with EVP. Equipment such as tape recorders, mini disc, digital voice recorders and computers can be used.


According to the American Association - Electronic Voice Phenomena (or AA-EVP), a possible explanation for EVP is contained in the Survival Hypothesis, which states, "...we are nonphysical entities who are able to exist in the physical aspect of reality because of our physical body, but that when our physical body dies, we as Self, change our point of view to nonphysical reality. In effect, we exist before and after our current lifetime. The working hypothesis supported by AA-EVP is that these messages are, indeed, nonphysical in origin and that the Survival Hypothesis is essentially correct. However, even though the fact of these messages can be demonstrated, their origin cannot."

An alternative explanation is that the white noise sometimes used to record EVP provides random sounds that may be interpreted as voices by people who expect or want to hear voices. This explanation is consistent with the theory that the entire "phenomenon" is an example of pareidolia, in which a vague or random stimulus is mistakenly perceived as recognizable.

Voices are said to be known for being rapid, faint, and often spoken in grammatically unusual and simplified language—or even multiple languages during the same sentence. The interpretation of such recordings is often highly subjective and may differ from listener to listener; some listeners may hear nothing at all, while others report hearing specific phrases or sentences.

EVP Tips

Use an external, static free microphone.

If using tapes always use brand new, high quality tapes. Never record over old tapes. There's always a chance that the overlapping recordings will mix and you'll hear things that shouldn't be.

Don't bump the microphone and if you do, make a verbal note of it on the tape. You may also want to note any other nature sounds such as gusting winds, creaking doors, etc.

Record in 20 to 30 minute sessions. You can record longer, but keep in mind that you have to listen to the tape later. If you record two hours of tape then you have to listen to two hours of tape. That can be very time consuming.

Ask clear and precise questions. Don't whisper during the recordings.

After each question wait at least 10 to 15 seconds before asking the next question. It won't do much good if you never let the ghost get a word in edgewise.

Ghost Connections and EVP

We have been using digital voice recorders on investigation and have recorded several unexplained voices. A considerable amount are what we would call in-audiable, however there have been some recordings that are unmistakeable.

We have included our favorite recordings on the left and unlike some websites we will not offer our interruptation of the recordings as we feel that this would be auto suggestive. You are free to hear what you will.

If you think you have heard something please send your comments to us
