New EVP BookMeh
I just finished watching White Noise and loved it so when I heard about a new book about EVP I had to share it. Nathan Toms, an author and musician from England, announces the release of his revised fictional supernatural thriller book, "The Electronic Ghosts," based on Electronic Voice Phenomena (EVP). Toms also has a remixed dance track, called "The Ghost in The Tape Machine."
Toms says the film "Poltergeist," the BBC TV drama "The Stone Tape" and "Breakthrough," a book about EVP by Konstantin Raudive, inspired him to write the "The Electronic Ghosts."
Both the book and the dance track were originally conceived in 1999, five years before the recently released movie "White Noise" was made, a British, Canadian and American production. Toms claims his book is similar to the idea behind "White Noise."
"I submitted my screenplay of 'The Electronic Ghosts' several times to UK film producers from 1999 to 2002, but it was rejected for not being mainstream enough," Toms says. But now with the popularity of "White Noise," it's evident that EVP has indeed become more of a mainstream topic.
"Due to the overwhelming interest in the subject, I decided to fine-tune some aspects of my own book," Toms says.
"The Electronic Ghosts," is mainly a thriller, but includes humour as well. The book touches on the frequently asked question, "Can people really communicate with the dead through electronic devices?" Andrew Stein, the main character, discovers a book about EVP and the ability to contact the spirit world with electronic machines; he then embarks on a mission to find answers to this mystery. Soon, Stein makes contact with ghosts, and thrilling adventures begin.
Toms' Web site, under the name Mystery Disguise explains many facts about EVP and Konstantin Raudive.
"The Ghost In The Tape Machine" is a musical tribute to EVP. It was originally recorded in 1996 and released through Disguise Inc. (Toms' own record label). It contains one of Tom's own EVP messages he recorded and spoken samples of the scientific recording devices used by Konstantin Raudive in his research for the 1971 book "Breakthrough: An Amazing Experiment in Electronic Communication with the Dead."
