Last week, I shared with you, EVP clips from our visit to the Yangshuo Silver Cave in Guilin, China. I got many good clips fro that session and decided to make two posts. To see Part 1, go here. In this second part, I’m going to be sharing some more incredible clips, these ones are relating to Prince.

It became apparent to me from reviewing the recording, that Prince fans (in spirit) had followed us into the cave. Some were talking amongst themselves and some got to interact with P.

You may need to use headphones to hear these properly. The clips are repeated on loop.

I found this clip where a fan says to P, “You’re the best rock star, in the whole world”.

I heard them say, “Under The Cherry Moon movie”. Strangely, while I was in the cave, I was thinking about the movie, as it reminded me of the cave scenes, where Prince’s character took the girl to the ghrotto. It makes me wonder, who was thinking it first? Did they read my thoughts, or did I read theirs?


Then someone said, “I never saw that”.


And then another responded with, “Such a good film”. I agree.

In this clip, someone says, “I saw Prince”.

In this clip, a voice says, “Prince, ya hear this?”. Another says, “That’s a piano”. As we were nearing the end of the cave, the spirits around him had discovered a piano in the cave.


Prince responded, “How divine”. A voice then said, “Do a concert here”.


A male voices commented, “Play the piano here”.

Prince played a one-minute concert in his typical Piano and a Microphone tour style. This clip is not looped. This is the longest and clearest clip I have of him playing, and the only clip where he is playing to an audience. It is incredible. I was stunned when I found it. I almost could not believe it, but it really was, as what the spirits said on the tape, he was really playing piano in a cave! You can hear him singing, but it’s hard to make out the words. At this point in the recording, I was standing by a bunch of electric fans, I am not yet sure if it helped or hindered the recording. I have adjusted the EQ channels to clean up the recording the best I could.

While he was playing, I think he asked the audience if they could hear him, someone answered, “We’re hearing bats”. If you listen closely to the concert clip above, you do hear bats in the background. There were no bas in the cave, nor were there any sound effects playing. The bats were on the other side.


While he was playing, he mentioned my name, “Andrea Mai”.


After he finished playing, someone said to him “That was beautiful”. Another voice agreed, “Oh yeah“.

Right after P finished playing, I also spotted another voice saying, “Take a picture here”, and you hear a little camera snap. By this time, I had stopped taking photos because it was so hot and I wanted to get out. I wish I knew what was going on, otherwise I would have taken a photo too!

The last pic that I took in there was this.

I thought it looked like an angel wing. P thought the same, as he said, “It’s an angel wing”. You can hear my camera snap in the clip.


This goes to show that it would be possible to record Prince playing his music from the other side. What conditions are needed to make this happen is not yet fully understood. I am determined to find out. I wish I had access to better equipment and people who might be able to help. If we could refine the recording process, we would essentially have reliable communication with the other side, “the soul phone”. At this point, it is still hit or miss, but we have proof of concept, and that is really exciting.

These recordings were recorded using  my EVP Wrist Recorder 3 on November 4, 2018.
