Within ghost hunting and parapsychology, Electronic Voice Phenomena (EVP) are sounds found on electronic recordings that are interpreted as spirit voices that have been either unintentionally recorded or intentionally requested and recorded. Parapsychologist Konstantīns Raudive, who popularized the idea in the 1970s, described EVP as typically brief, usually the length of a word or short phrase.
Enthusiasts consider EVP to be a form of paranormal phenomena often found in recordings with static or other background noise, however, psychologists regard EVP as a form of auditory pareidolia (interpreting random sounds as voices in one’s own language) and a pseudoscience promulgated by popular culture. Prosaic explanations for EVP include apophenia (perceiving patterns in random information), equipment artifacts, and hoaxes.
In a rebroadcast from 10/18/03, Brendan Cook & Barbara McBeath of the Ghost Investigators Society presented another selection of recorded ghost voices, known as Electronic Voice Phenomena (EVP).
