Electronic Voice Phenomena
There are a lot of theories about how EVPs are captured, but unfortunately all they are is theories; nobody has come up with a definitive answer as to how the recordings occur. Investigators everywhere will tell you after recording on a site, it is not uncommon to have responses on audio recording on playback that the investigator didn’t hear while making the recording.
In most cases two versions of each EVP is provided. One is the original recording. The second recording is the same sound file with the volume of the actual EVP turned up to make it easier to hear. In some EVPS I will leave enough audio on the front of the recording to put it into context.
Use of headphones is HIGHLY recommended! It also helps to turn up your volume. Most EVPS are faint and difficult to hear. To further understand the EVP grading system click here.
The WISPS team conducts at a minimum one investigation per month, sometimes multiple investigations in a month as demand dictates, or as opportunity arises. Below is a list of investigations conducted by list, and a small sampling of EVPs captured at each investigation. We will update this list as we conduct new investigations.
To help with ease of loading EVPs have been categorized by year.
