EVP Press Relations Office

Welcome members of the press and publishing media as well as webmasters and E-zine editors.

It has been man's dream to talk with the dead. Now you can.

"All you need is a regular tape recorder" say researchers of the electronic voice phenomenon, or EVP, and you can record ghostly voices that answer your questions, call out your name or even tease you a little. Featured in the new Michael Keaton movie 'White Noise', this is no hollywood creation. People have been recording these strange voices ever since the invention of sound recording equipment and the popularity of digital and PC recording has produced a dramatic increase in the number of high quality samples taken by people around the world.

Experiments were conducted in special radio proof rooms during the early seventies at both Cambridge University and Pye records in England which suggest these are not stray radio waves inadvertantly picked up by the recording equipment. After listening to thousands of samples taken during his own research, noted ex-NASA voice recognition expert Alex MacRae concluded some are indeed recordings of actual voices, even though no one present during recording heard any voices at all. Supporters claim they communicate with the dead who respond to direct questions while skeptics struggle for a more plausable scientific explanation.

This is a story for you.
Talking with the dead via tape recorder is an attention grabbing subject. Stories featuring people's personal experiences or ghost hunting reports, the history and science of evp, short biographies of the famous researchers, how to do it yourself or even debunking will keep your readers attention until the very last word.

Why now?
With the new Michael Keaton movie White Noise in theaters, interest has never been greater and your readers are demanding for the first time to know more about this strange paranormal phenomenon. EVP is a hot topic in the major press and broadcast media as well as the internet. As one web surfer put it "there are more discussion topics on the internet about EVP than Jesus right now."

But where do you find quality content your readers will enjoy when most freelance writers think evp stands for Executive Vice President? (contact me)

"My daughter yells at the dog from the dead"
Two years after her death, Martha Copeland recorded her daughter Cathy yelling at their dog as he tore up the living room. It prompted her to found an international organization dedicated to contacting the dead with a tape recorder on thursday nights.

"Ghosts in your TV?"
Can evil beings come through your television like in the new movie white noise starring Michael Keaton? No, say professional ghost hunters, very few evp experiences are from evil spirits and spirit beings don't generally come out of TV's.

"What is in the White Noise? Scientists trying to prove it was the radio failed."
An experiment was conducted at Cambridge University in 1971 to prove the electronic voice pheonmoneon, featured in the movie white noise, is not a method to communicate with the dead using ordinary electronic devices, but only stray radio signals picked up by crude devices. Scientists failed in their attempt and abandonded their research.

"Hearing voices in white noise."
White noise is literally all the various frequencies the human ear can hear at the same time. Why do people hear voices in it? Psychologist Jim Alcock says “Perception is a very complex process, and when our brains try to find patterns, they are guided in part by what we expect to hear; The brain puts together the visual cue and the auditory input, and we actually “hear” what we are informed is being said, even though without that information, we could discern nothing.”
