Paranormal Answer Man: What should I do about freaky EVP?

By December 10, 2012

Follow me on:

"I was playing with my cat on my bed and decided I wanted to make a video of her," says Nikki. "She growls a lot when I tickle her, so I thought it would be cute to have it recorded. I turned on the camcorder from my cell phone and began to record her for about a minute and a half. I replayed the video to see how it came out, and approximately one minute and 20 seconds in, I clearly heard a male voice ask, 'Who is this?'..."

EVP, or electronic voice phenomena, is one of the most mysterious puzzles in the field of ghost research. Voices of unknown origin really do seem to appear on recordings, but no one can say with certainty where they come from or how they are recorded. We don't know if they are ghosts, interdimensional in nature, or psychic projections, to name a few theories. The first step in to find out if you have a genuine EVP.... Read the rest of my answer.

Since it is on her cell phone it’s possible she picked up a call from somewhere or even that she accidentally dialed a number. “Who is this” would be the logical response to her calling someone accidentally. I get interference on my cell phone a lot, I can sometimes hear fuzzy conversations from other people, it’s possible that’s what happened to her.

I would say the first thing she needs to do is make a recording using a standard tape recorder just to rule out it being something to do with her phone.

My advice is to take the recording off of your phone and open the sound file into a program that shows sound waves and zoom in on the section where you hear the voice. If it’s a spirit trying to contact you then you will see that the sound waves are significantly different to the sound waves in which our voices create.

If it isn’t too much to ask, I’d be happy if you could send the sound file to me, via email: (ruudvandazzar@hotmail.co.uk), so I can look into it because I’m very interested in the Paranormal, especially EVP’s.
