I’ve been thinking about Klaus Schreiber’s ITC work with video in the 1980s. Here is an article about that on World ITC. I believe he used to receive the images, then would transfer them to another video recorder, and the more he did this the clearer the images would become – quite against any earthly logic. I wondered if this would apply to audio and because my file, though only days old, had become flooded with EVP, I thought I would make gibberish out of the gibberish. I made a 3 minute file, altering the length of the segments every minute to see what the results are. You can hear this on file 4369. The first full length recordings are made with the original gibberish.

EVP “Calibrate”
EVP “Listen”
EVP “Pro quality”
EVP “You save us to sounds”

At this point I took a break to scramble the gibberish again. I wasn’t expecting much because to my ear there was a lot of stuttering of the same sounds. It still worked – but I don’t think there’s been an improvement. During the recording of file 4369 my cat decided to go berserk, trying to knock pictures off the wall and shouting. So file 4369 is mostly about the cat. 😀

EVP “Give biscuits”
EVP “He is a cat”
EVP “This flat is his home”
“This flat is his home”

We are now onto the second minute of the new sound file, and the gibberish had been altered slightly. The subject is smoking. I’m a heavy smoker, having taken it up again a couple of years ago. I’m not sure of the origin of the messages as at least one sounds like a team member, but it is not like them to mention something like this, unless asked.

EVP “This is ok”
EVP “Is smoking good?”
EVP “Hold the baccys Nicki”
“That’s her business”
EVP “This is Peter”
EVP “Passive smoking’s deadly”
EVP “He (?!) is smoking … have a ciggy”
EVP “Smoker”
EVP “This is nanny”

Slightly perturbed by the smoking theme, I was relieved that we had reached the end of the new file and I decided to try something I hadn’t tried for a long time – Alexa (see Amazon device used for EVP) . Below you will see I have an EVP saying “your aunt Terry”. Terry is the daughter of ‘nanny’ mentioned above. 🙂

EVP “Cross the room”
EVP “Your aunt Terry”

It was at this point I made a new discovery – I turned the volume down so that Alexa was barely audible for me. You can hear traffic from outside quite clearly on the full recording #4376 . To me I was sitting in near silence with only traffic audible every so often. I’d asked my communicators to say the word ‘Ozzy’ if they were still around and could use the file at that volume level. This is what I got..

EVP “Ozzy”
