Electronic voice phenomena (EVP) were first discovered by the Swedish artist Friedrich Jürgenson in 1959. Jürgenson was recording birdsong using a reel-to-reel tape recorder. When he replayed the tapes, he heard faint but intelligible voices in the background, even though there was no-one else in the vicinity when the recordings were made. By repeating the procedure, Jürgenson found that the voice recordings could be reliably replicated. These phenomena were subsequently investigated by the German parapsychologist Hans Bender and by the Latvian psychologist Konstantin Raudive.
Taking their inspiration from Jürgenson’s work,In this first in a series of EVP experiments testcard have composed the soundtrack to Nosferatu using a sound pool of samples taken directly from haunted locations in Paris,London, Brighton and the Internet.
This is a new genre of cinema from the pioneers of misconstructionism testcard in collaboration with spirits from beyond the grave….
