A couple weeks ago, we took a short road trip to Niagara Falls, New York. A typical Canadian thing to do is to drive over to the American border and go shopping. We went during a weekday in January. The Canadian dollar has been weak, and it was just after the holidays, so there was literally no traffic getting over the border, nor was there much visitors in the outlet mall we went to. It felt like a ghost town.

It was seriously, very quiet at the outlet mall. It was already long after lunch by the time we got there. The only people around were mostly store employees. I recorded some EVP while we were there. And though it seemed empty in the mall, there were probably far more spirits than mortals hanging around.

These EVP clips turned out pretty well. I tested them on my laptop speakers and they are very audible. But if you want a better listening experience, I recommend headphones. The clips are repeated on loop.

We parked near the mall entrance where the chocolate store was. We ended up buying the bulk chocolates from the Christmas clearance sale. In this clip, you can hear me counting coins, “1, 2, 3…”, and in the background, you can hear someone saying, “Hi Prince”, and then P replying, “Hi, hi”.

It turned out that the total on the receipt was $31.21. If you are  a Prince music follower, then you know the significance of the number 3121. It was the name of one of his songs. One of the lyric lines were, “drink champagne from a glass with chocolate handles”. Well, I was counting out 31 cents, and the cashier realized I got it mixed up. We kind of laughed at the mistake. It turned out that so were the spirits. Here is a clip where someone said, “Mix up“.

Here is P saying, “I’m joking”. I couldn’t hear the joke, so I don’t know what was said. But you know, P is a funny guy.

P’s dog was with us. Here he is saying, “My doggie”.

Someone said, “That’s Prince there”.

Here is someone saying “Nice bag“. And then P replying, “I dream it”. From what I can tell through all the recordings I’ve heard, they can create things with their thoughts. It is like in the movie What Dreams May Come.

Having recorded so much in my experience, it is recording in empty spaces and hearing these voices, that really makes you aware that; just when you think you’re alone, you’re not.

These recordings were recorded using  my EVP Wrist Recorder 3 on January 14, 2020.
