The Triple Approach EVP Experiment 

The Triple Approach EVP Experiment 

A Little Background

Various EVP experiments have become almost normality now within the paranormal field with many individuals and groups trying variations on asking simple questions. Over the years as with many of these kind of experiments I have often favoured the ‘what if’ element to spice it up a little.

Interestingly enough an investigator years back initially suggested to the idea of approaching an EVP session a little differently. This approach was to run and EVP session, but with no physical person present and using recorded questions. The first time we tried this it wasn’t successful at all. However that as we all know doesn’t mean we should give up on an idea.

The concept has been something which has remained with me over the years and when I read a little on the observer effect, the idea returned making more sense than ever.

So, here’s a more detailed approach to the same EVP Experiment which may yield a little more results and certainly some more comparisons.

What You Will Need

Again I have tried to keep this experiement relatively simple so not to require too many or complex devices. Although you will need to do a little preparation prior to the experiment. So, here’s what you will need.

  • A Digital Voice Recorder
  • An MP3 Player/Laptop/Device to play an audio file
  • A Digital Camera

That is really it to be honest. Of course once you master the simple form of the experiment you can add in additional tech to help you cross reference the data you may capture.

The Method

Firstly, you’re going to need to do a little work before you start. This can either be completed prior to arriving at your investigation location using any research you may have done or you can complete it on the fly once at the location and you have a feel for the place.

Either way you will need to record around ten questions, which will also be the same questions that you will be asking during your session, so write them down in your notebook.

Secondly, pick a room/place at the location which will be ideal for this experiment. Take into account any reports of activity to find the best suited location. Also, take into account any audio contamination in the chosen location too.

Preparation

  1. Write ten questions relevant to the location down.
  2. Record those ten questions on a device for playback later (not the digital voice recorder).
  3. Pick the location for the experiment.
  4. Photograph the location.

Silent Unmanned Recording

  1. Setup the digital voice recorder in the location.
  2. Tag the experiment, location, date and time on the recording.
  3. Photograph the setup, but tag yourself doing so.
  4. Leave the location.
  5. Allow the digital voice recorder to record for the same length of time as the recording of the questions, which is likely to be roughly ten minutes.
  6. Return to the location.
  7. Photograph the location, but tag yourself doing so.
  8. Tag the time and that you’re closing the experiment on the recording before stopping the digital voice recorder.
  9. Stop the recording.

Playback Unmanned Recording

  1. Setup the digital voice recorder in the the location.
  2. Setup the player/device/laptop ready to play the pre-recorded questions.
  3. Tag the experiment, location, date and time on the recording.
  4. Photograph the setup, but tag yourself doing so.
  5. Start the pre-recording of the questions.
  6. Leave the location.
  7. Allow the experiment to run for the duration of the pre-recorded questions.
  8. Return to the location.
  9. Photograph the location, but tag yourself doing so.
  10. Tag the time and that you’re closing the experiment on the recording before stoppping the digital voice recorder.
  11. Stop the recording.

Manned Recording

  1. Setup the digital voice recorder in the location.
  2. Tag the experiment, location, date and time not the recording.
  3. Photograph the setup, but tag yourself doing so.
  4. Start asking the questions, leaving a brief gap between each question. It should be very similar to your recording.
  5. Photograph the location, but tag yourself doing so.
  6. Tag the time and that you’re closing the experiment on the recording before stopping the digital voice recorder.
  7. Stop the recording.

Managing the Results

Once you’ve completed all three versions of the experiment you should then have somewhere close to thirty minutes of audio to review. The review of the audio can be completed during the investigation on the fly or post investigaiton.

The results in this help us in a number of ways. Firstly, it helps us to understand the conditions in which EVP’s may be captured. It may also help us to see if our presence is required too.

Remember to timeline the recordings and define which questions may appear to yield responses.

As ever I will be interested to see how you get on with this experiment and if it does work well for you, please feel free to share your audio with me at info@ashleyknibb.com.

Once you’ve used this method a few times try mixing things up a little with other approaches and more gadgets to gain more information.
