Shinn House (5/30/15): Set-up Room (Part 1)

The set-up room is at the back end of the house on the 1st floor. My group investigated this room after the basement.

Clip 1: Laura J says, “Uh, let’s put it [her rem pod] in the front of the basement, the door. I’ll put it right here.” As she says, “I’ll put it right here,” a male disembodied voice can be heard saying, “There she goes,” at the 5 second mark. You may hear faint beeping sounds as the disembodied voice speaks. This is the rem pod going off in the background.

Clip 2: You’ll hear me ask the spirits to say the name of someone in the other group. At the 6 second mark, a voice can be heard saying what sounds like, “Chris spirit.” Chris was the name of someone in the other group. I don’t know what “spirit” refers to. I’ve amplified this part of the clip so hopefully you’ll be able to hear the disembodied voice.

Clip 3: Laura J asks, “Do you want to hear some music?” You’ll then hear some faint knocking sounds. These knocking sounds happened numerous times when my group was in the set-up room. We weren’t able to determine where the sounds were coming from or what was making them.

In the pause that follows, there is a sudden, small cry at 9 seconds in. You’ll next hear our responses to the cry.

At first, Laura J wonders if the cry was someone’s stomach making a sound. (My group had very talkative stomachs all night long.) At the 12 second mark, you can faintly hear the cry again. These are clearly not a stomach sound. What’s odd is that the cry sounds close to us, almost as if it’s in the set-up room with us. This contrasts with the very faint and muffled voices you can hear outside coming from humans who were walking around the grounds of the house.

These cries were found only upon listening to my recording; they were not heard by us at the time of the recording. I describe the sound as a small “yip” and others wonder if it was made by a cat.

Clip 4: This is a 2nd generation recording of the cry. You’ll hear Laura J wonder if that was the sound from a human stomach. Someone in real time says, “It almost sounds like…” At the 5 second mark, a voice can be heard saying something. Can you make it out? I’ve amplified this portion of the clip.

Clip 5: This is another 2nd generation recording of the crying sound. Right after you hear the cry, you can hear a disembodied female voice say what sounds like, “Get out the juice.” Interestingly, someone had brought apple juice for the group to enjoy on our upcoming break.
