EVP Expert, Haunted site Investigator Michael Esposito Returns to the Paracast

Research associate and fellow sonic sculpturer Michael Esposito returns to the Paracast. Michael and I collaborated on an album titled: Medea last year and have worked together on various haunted site investigations in three states since 2005 and were principles in the 2006 documentary Dead Whisper that I co-produced w/ Ronald James.

Esposito is a descendant of Alfred Vail who invented the Morse Code and several early telegraph devices with his partner Samuel Morse. The invention of the telegraph sparked the spiritualist movement of the middle 1800s and the telegraph was used in spirit communication. Another ancestor, Jonathan Harned Vail was office manager and assistant to Thomas Edison. Edison, in his later years attempted to develop a device for communicating with the dead.

Michael studied communication theory at Purdue University, University of Notre Dame, American University in Cairo, Egypt and Governor's State University. During the Gulf War Michael was a Psy-ops officer in Iraq.

Over the years, under the Phantom Airwaves Institution, Michael has participated in hundreds of paranormal investigations all over the world. He has conducted extensive research at many active locations and has developed a great deal of unique theory and devised many unique experiments within the field of EVP. Focusing primarily on EVP research, he has collected tens of thousands EVPs and video. He has had numerous television, radio and newspaper appearances.

Working extensively with EVP's relationship to experimental music, Michael combines EVP with field recording and related frequency tones of research sites. Michael is currently published by Touch (UK).

Thanks Chris . Wow my first questions!

Question 1: we see a lot of groups and shows using evp with various technologies/tools. Are these tools and methods all equals?
Question 2: Many evps captured leave a lot of room for interpretation, can answer questions or not. It seems a very inconsistent phenomena exposed to pareidolia, bad capture methods and sound contamination. Is there any relevant evidence to suggest this is indeed intelligent communication from something ? Would you have any evidence where information unknown to the audience was captured and verified after?
Question 3: was there any attempt to analyze these voices and compare them to human voices to see if indeed these came from people or not?

Thanks from France !

Is there a good mechanism from distinguishing the signal from the noise with EVPs? How can you be somewhat assured that it's not random?
