This was a relatively short sitting as participants were tired and holding concentration in a seance when fatigued is not easy. There were multiple audible knocks and noises heard in the room that are not evidenced below but do feature on the master recording. For a period of almost two years, there was a decrease in reported light phenomena but in recent sittings, we are glad to see its gradual return.
EVP 1: Whoever the speakers are, they do not hesitate to let us know of their frustrations in the way we either organise the seance or our timekeeping. In this sitting we had been paying a lot of attention to the set up of electronic equipment and the communicators had to wait longer than usual for us to begin.
EVP 2: For the first 20 minutes of the sitting we played a variety of music, one song for each of our most regular communicators. This EVP was captured long after the music had stopped; Supergrass is not one of the artists on the current seance play list.
EVP 3: Tracey is reporting a green-blue light that she can see besides Rachel's head. The structure of the EVP is odd; did the speaker mean to say "wasn't that what you wanted"?
EVP 4: The only word spoken by the group in this EVP is "oops", by Rachel, after "that is very odd". There appears to be three voices having a short conversation about our seance procedure, this is not uncommon on our recordings.
EVP 5: It is rare that we get an EVP that alludes to heaven, let alone one which is sung. This was captured towards the end of the sitting, when the amount of communicators has a tendency to decrease.
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
