McConaghy House (6/14/14): More from the Carriage House

The first set of clips are all 1st generation recordings caught during the group session in the Carriage House at the end of the evening. I have another set of EVPs from this session, all recorded from Laura J's playback, posted under the title, "From the Group Session in the Carriage House." Clip 1: You'll hear Laura J say, "But he hasn't gotten back to me." I then hear a male voice whisper, "What? Wow." The closest male to me was Mike, who was standing opposite me. Mike: Is it possible Read more [...]

McConaghy House (6/14/14): From the Group Session in the Carriage House

To be honest, when I first walked into the Carriage House at McConaghy House and saw the layout, I didn't think it'd be possible to record good EVPs. Our set-up area was somewhat small and there were as many as 16 people present during the EVP session. I also didn't get much of a "sense" about the building. I was so wrong! These clips are from the group EVP session we all did at the end of the investigation. All of these clips are from my recording of Laura J's playback of the EVP session Read more [...]

Meek Mansion (5/24/14): Stray Clips

Here are some clips from different parts of Meek Mansion. Clip 1: While in the Servants' Quarters on the 2nd floor, Chris felt very strongly that someone at some time had jumped out one of the windows. This led her to ask if someone had jumped. The docent said she'd heard that someone had done that. Diane asked, "Was it a servant who jumped out of the window or just someone else who worked in the house?" In the middle of this, I hear a voice at the 4 second mark saying, "Servant jumped [garbled]." Clip Read more [...]

Meek Mansion (5/24/14): From the Front Parlor, Part 2

Here/hear are the EVPs caught in the Front Parlor of Meek Mansion on 5/24/14. There were some really interesting EVPs and activity going on when my group was there, along with all those odd thumps, thuds, knocking, and footsteps (Part 1). Clip 1A: This is a 2nd generation recording. You'll hear Laura J coughing, followed by an EVP that sounds like, "OK, now." It sounds like the spirits were concerned about Laura J., who just had a bad coughing fit. What's weird is that, at the time of the Read more [...]

Meek Mansion (5/24/14): From the Front Parlor, Part 1

[This week, I will be posting the rest of my EVPs and other odd sounds from the Meek Mansion investigation on 5/24/14. I'm in a bit of a rush to do so, as I am returning to Meek Mansion on Saturday, 6/28/14, for another investigation. I don't want to get behind on my EVP analysis! This sampling will give you a small sense of the types of other sounds my group heard while in the Front Parlor. The first floor was pretty noisy with other sounds coming from elsewhere in the Mansion. A good example Read more [...]

Pardee Home (6/1/14): Here and There

These recordings were caught at different places in the Pardee Home. I've identified the location or area where I was at the time of the recording. All of these clips are 1st generation recordings. Note: I have more clips than just these 3 recorded in different places in the Home but I'm not posting most of them. What I think sounds like an EVP could, more likely, be the the normal breathing of the docent as he talked. Most of those "EVPs" sound like "yeah" or "Ann," and there's far too many Read more [...]

Pardee Home Museum (6/1/14): From the Dining Room

These clips are taken from my recording in the Dining Room at the Pardee Home on 6/1/14. There was noise coming from the people talking in the room. I've posted only those clips that I thought were clear or odd. All of these clips are 1st generation recordings. In the clips, it's possible that I'm picking up a human person talking or whispering. I've identified those instances so you can listen to the clip and figure out who's talking. Clip 1: You'll hear Laura J talking about a past investigation Read more [...]

Pardee Home (6/1/14): Up in the Cupola with Mariah

These were all recorded during the channeling session with Mariah. In all the clips, you'll hear the loud sound of traffic because the windows in the Cupola were open. Despite that ongoing noise, it's still possible to make out what could be EVPs. Clip 1: This is a long clip and is near the beginning of the actual channeling session. In it, you'll hear Mariah, channeling a spirit, ask Tanya, "How do you warm up a chocolate chip cookie?" Unfortunately for Tanya, she knows and says the answer Read more [...]

McConaghy House (6/14/14): In the Basement, Part 2

Here are some more EVPs caught in the Basement of the McConaghy House. Clip 1: You'll hear Mike say, "Coming from over there [referring to a sound he just heard], that flashlight," and Laura J agree with him. At 4 seconds, I can clearly hear something and it sounds like the same thing said in Clip 8 in Part 1 of In the Basement. Clip 1 happened about 2 minutes after Clip 8/Part 1. What are the chances of catching the same EVP twice in such a short amount of time? Or was this one of the humans, Read more [...]

McConaghy House (6/14/14): In the Basement, Part 1

After our break, I switched groups and went with Laura J's group. We were in the basement when these were recorded. These are all 2nd generation recordings that came from Laura J's DVR and were recorded when she played her recording back to the group right after the EVP session ended. Clip 1: You'll hear Elizabeth ask, "Do you like to drink tea?" At 3 seconds, I can hear 4 syllables of something being said but I can't figure out the words. Earlier in the evening, when I was with my Read more [...]
