Electronic Voice Phenomena or EVPs are voices that are caught on audio recorders that could not be heard during recording. Sometimes these sounds are unidentifiable and garbled, but sometimes they are clearly voices.
One of the earliest references of EVP came from Thomas Edison when asked by an interviewer if he could use his devices to communicate with the dead he said nobody knows whether “our personalities pass on to another existence or sphere” but "it is possible to construct an apparatus which will be so delicate that if there are personalities in another existence or sphere who wish to get in touch with us in this existence or sphere, this apparatus will at least give them a better opportunity to express themselves than the tilting tables and raps and ouija boards and mediums and the other crude methods now purported to be the only means of communication." (Clark 1997: 235)
Today, EVP is considered some of the best evidence in support of the paranormal. Below is a sampling of some of the EVPs collected by GGPI over the years.
These specific EVPs were recorded using a Panasonic RR-DR60 digital recorder. We also use analog mini cassette recorders.
