Depth of Silence
So many EVP are loud and demonstrative - A-class windows into what we perceive to be the
paranormal. Others are much less so and are frequently ignored - buried in the deepest
part of quiet - unfindable. Out of the silence they come. We turn on those recorders, or
video cameras, or what have you – and we ask a question or make a comment, or sit
quietly in a chair, and there… out of the hiss of recorder silence comes a voice. Silence
must not be so empty. We think of silence as devoid of sound. Perhaps it is not. Perhaps
if we listen deeper... How quiet is quiet?
