What you are about to listen to is what WPI believes is an EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena) captured from one of our digital voice recorders. The digital audio files captured and analyzed have not been altered or enhanced in any way. We strongly urge the listener to make their own personal decision on what they hear. Our intentions are not to make a skeptic a believer or a believer not to consider being skeptical. Paranormal investigating and the equipment used in the field is not an exact science.
Wikipedia Definition & History of EVP:
Electronic voice phenomena (EVP) are electronically
generated noises that resemble speech, but are supposedly not the result
of intentional voice recordings or renderings. Common sources of EVP
include static, stray radio transmissions, and background noise.
Recordings of EVP are often created from background sound by increasing
the gain (i.e. sensitivity) of the recording equipment.
Interest in EVP surrounds claims that it is of paranormal origin, although many occurrences have had natural explanations including apophenia (finding significance in insignificant phenomena), auditory pareidolia (interpreting random sounds as voices in one's own language), equipment artifacts, and hoaxes.
As the Spiritualismreligious movement became prominent in the 1840s–1920s with a distinguishing belief that the spirits of the dead can be contacted by mediums, new technologies of the era including photography were employed by spiritualists in an effort to demonstrate contact with a spirit world. So popular were such ideas that Thomas Edison was asked in an interview with Scientific American
to comment on the possibility of using his inventions to communicate
with spirits. He replied that if the spirits were only capable of subtle
influences, a sensitive recording device would provide a better chance
of spirit communication than the table tipping and ouija boards
mediums employed at the time. However, there is no indication that
Edison ever designed or constructed a device for such a purpose. As sound recording
became widespread, mediums explored using this technology to
demonstrate communication with the dead as well. Spiritualism declined
in the latter part of the 20th century, but attempts to use portable
recording devices and modern digital technologies to communicate with
This page is very USER FRIENDLY and will work on any PC that can stream YouTube videos. These videos were created to give you the information leading up to the EVP without giving you a suggestive thought of what to listen for. This is why we leave the interpretation up to you. We do not enhance our EVPs (i.e. speed up, slow down or add any other type of filters) however we do loop them so you can focus on the actual EVP. What you hear is what we originally heard during our review. We are not trying to convince you that the paranormal exists. You've already had your mind made up prior to viewing our website. How do you know what you just listened to was paranormal? You don't! So how do you know it just wasn't a natural sound recorded that sounds like a voice? You don't! There are too many variables and you weren't there during the captured audio. We just want you to listen with an open mind. If you knew the extent of what we go through to debunk each piece of evidence captured, you'd take a leap of faith and trust that we post only what we deem to be paranormal.
These captured EVPs are posted with the sole purpose to share with you and more importantly to get your opinion on them. We HUNT the TRUTH and want to hear from you. Feel free to email email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org and state what EVP below on what you believe it is saying, whether fact or fiction.
Headphones plugged into your system are highly recommended while listening to our EVP audio clips. If you don't have headphones we suggest that you turn your speaker volume up while having as little noise around you as possible.
