Trying My Hand At EVP

EVPOn my way home from an appointment I decided to try my hand at capturing EVPs. I wanted to know what the experience was like. I personally didn’t expect to capture anything, but I thought I would at least understand what it would feel like stepping out of my comfort zone into chilling territory.

Using an app that:

“Uses your devices internal playback algorithms to generate 2 sets of random carrier sounds that changes ever 8th of a second.”

I set out to capture…whatever I might.

I connected my device to my car’s speakers and let it run. The produced sound was kind of intense, but also soothing. I felt a thrill and a chill wondering what -if anything- the recorder would pick up.

When I got home I analyzed the audio files through Audacity. Most of what I picked up was car noise. There were a few things that sounded like words that I couldn’t understand.

I was surprised to pick up two EVPs. One says, “I need help…” The second says either “Is he dead?” or “Is he there?” It is difficult to decipher.

The experience was thrilling. I may try it again soon.

Research for writing has never been so fun…and intense!
