Please note, some of these EVP clips are very feint and are best listened to with headphones or earbuds or you may not hear the voices. During a daytime walk around a local cemetery and church I decided to do an EVP recording session, asking questions as I went round. The locations were Hall Road Cemetery, and its near neighbour Saint Laurence Church in Rochford, Essex, uk. St Laurence church has records dating back to 1100 AD and the location its in, near Eastwood, appears in the Doomsday Book. It certainly had a spooky feel about it, and although a lot of the EVP session had wind interference I did pick up 3 possible ethereal voices. I dont often go ghost hunting at cemeteries or graveyards as I always feel that spirits would prefer to visit a place that they have fond memories rather than their physical body’s resting place. Its one of those unanswered questions, are cemeteries and graveyards haunted or are you more likely to encounter the paranormal and supernatural at a haunted house, pub or other historic building?
EVP or electronic voice phenomena as it is known is thought to be voices of those passed away trying to communicate with us captured on electronic devices. When trying to capture EVP, you can sit and ask questions or leave an audio recording device in a quiet room. When you play these recordings back, sometimes you will hear voices that were not present at the time, answering your questions or talking in general. This area of paranormal research was popularised when the film White Noise was released in 2005 starring Michael Keaton. The most popular method of capturing EVP is by using ordinary tape or digital audio dictaphone’s or recording devices. One of the pioneers in this field was Dr Konstantin Raudive (1909 – 1974) and his experiments are still much talked about today.
