We understand that the close link we forge with our communicators in regular séances enables us to capture consistently clear EVP. We provide an insight into the ongoing development of our group by providing a selection of clips from our most recent sitting.
There had been requests captured in EVP for a Victorian curtain styled seance cabinet for years and this sitting was the first in which we used our new piece of equipment. How we perform our recording séances never fails to amuse us, the construction of what amounts to an indoor velvet tent seems nonsensical to modern research but our consistently good results at capturing EVP have moderated our reluctance to do away with what might be a key factor in our success.
EVP 1: This voice was captured shortly after turning on the recorder, whilst we were preparing to sit but physically out of the room. There is possibly a slight Welsh inflection but as the phrase is quick, we're not sure whether it's one of our regular Welsh communicators.
EVP 2: It's hard to be certain if this is an EVP or not; although the voice isn't radically different from Gina's, the tonal character and intonation is most definitely not in the style of her usual speaking pattern. The clarity is also unmatched to Rachel's which is easily heard and without an obvious explanation.
EVP 3: The capture of a Scottish male speaker's phrase is puzzling, we have no frame of reference to understand what he's saying. We heard no voice in the room at the time, just a constant low level of clicking at the back of the cabinet.
EVP 4: Rachel is referring to a communicator that has come forwards many times over the years but whom we've known to be less than polite on occasion. By chance Rachel had seen a video on YouTube where a team had reported contact from the same communicator and they too had found him to be abrasive with his comments.
EVP 5: We had been discussing possible reasons for the lack of visible phenomena in the seance room and the gentleman who speaks confirms Rachel's thoughts.
The question of why we investigate a historic property through EVP is an important one; we see the possibility, however remote, of communication with people that lived in another era to be an opportunity not to be missed. We have a passion for our heritage and why would you not want to talk to the people who actually made our laws; bold scientific pioneers, flamboyant socialites, royalty, the cleaners and everyone in between; they made us who we are. It is the nearest we can get to picking up a phone and asking questions to a first person witness and a participant of historic events.Read More
There are few places in England as evocative as Hampton Court Palace and even fewer that you can feel history seeping from every brick as you pass. You may not see the ghosts of residents past on your visit but you should prepare to experience the eerie feeling that you are never alone. Recordings at the palace are rarely uneventful, most have multiple clear voices that join us in conversation. The clips chosen highlight how actively engaged the communicators are at the palace. That's not to say we are always made welcome.Read More
