Our monthly sitting took place during our stay at The Georgian House, Hampton Court Palace. As was usual, the seance room was arranged in the groundfloor study. This is quite a small room, with traditional wooden shutters, perfect for keeping out noctural lighting from Tennis Court Lane. Thankfully sound interference is negligible, the only regular intrusion is the rumble of overheard planes from Heathrow.
EVP 1: The gentleman who exlaims very clearly is obviously unimpressed with either the phenomena or our ability to work as he'd like. We regularly capture the voices of those who critique us and wouldn't have it any other way, they help us to improve our methods and analysis, which can only be a good thing.
EVP 2: Rachel assures those who communicate that we only have the ability to record their voices and nothing else. The reply is much welcomed and the speaker uses Rachel's pet name, which is often captured in EVP.
EVP 3: Gina and Rachel were discussing the appearance of a dancer with dark hair. The EVP that's captured makes sense; Helen who is a regular communicator, has beautiful dark hair and it's no surprise that they might assume we were referring to her.
EVP 4: Gina is observing Rachel in the seance cabinet and thinks she can see the bag holding the recorder, start to swing over Rachel's left shoulder. The capture if interpreted correctly is very evidential of communicators being able to physically interact with our environment.
EVP 5: Whilst not terribly clear, the voices captured in our final clip are plainly not ours. The meaning of the message is open to question, however as this was captured in a palace with its own chapel, this might be in reference.
There are additional clear EVP captures from this sitting in the video below, along with voices that were captured during the setting up of the seance room.
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
