I really don't understand why the name of a trick is a problem, as others and myself have said you don't have to say EVP. if you feel uncomfortable saying that. If I show someone a card trick..say Chaos 2. I don't start by saying . .'let me show you Chaos 2 by Alakazam and Peter Nardi, I could if I chose to but it would be dumb...same as any trick. If Alan had called this 'Ghosty' you also wouldn't start by saying let me show you Ghosty. . . .so whatever this is called is totally irrelevant.

It's not irrelevant because what you are doing is conducting a 'real' paranormal experiment (in their eyes) - not performing a trick in the hope of catching a voice from the other side. If you want to make this believable - which you should want if you care, then anything outside a 'magic trick' which your portraying this to be, has to be logical and in relation to to what already exists, that people can relate to e.g by reading someone's mind you accomplished it via different psychological techniques etc (this is more believable than you saying you have the power and gift to read someone's mind - because people already can relate to psycology. so because the basis of what you are doing is already out there, then people will associate this and what you are doing as a real experiment of calling out in the hope of catching an EVP - because that's what this is, an EVP experiment - investigating the paranormal - which is what paranormal investigators do.

In my personal opinion and yes it does matter and count, is to sell this and make this believable you HAVE to explain what an EVP is, why it is used in paranormal investigating and the 'evidence' on spirit voices are on a different frequency being picked up etc - that's why you can't hear them real time when calling out.

But failing that just perform this after you card to wallet it will be fine - lol

And there endeth the lesson.. not sure what that lecture was for. .
If this was called. . Ghosty.. . Say.
Then you would be happier to explain the E.V.P theory as your introduction. . People would still be able to type in. EVP smart phone trick and find it on google if they chose. . That is what some people are concerned about. .
But thanks for your enlightening instructions on how this effect should be performed. . .

If this is to be done only as a trick, I'm sure there will be no one upset if this is revealed by Val Valentino ( Masked Magician ) on television.
Or, method and gimmick revealed on you-tube !

So much for " Suspension of disbelief " ... LOL

Yep agree with Godzilla and perhaps just keep it as a trick - this is going to go down a killer follow up trick after the haunted deck 👍 also even when the obvious is there it still needs to be pointed out. It shouldn't need to, but unfortunately does. No worries guys, magicians helping magicians 👍

Also, I've thought of a really nice routine for this and don't mind sharing this. You do your sponge ball routine and make them all disappear at the end, you explain that you have a ghost that made them all disappear. His name is Casper, but don't be scared because he's a friendly ghost. He comes and goes and he loves the ball trick, shall we see if he's still here with us...

Google EVP and you get nothing but information about EVP. No tricks by alan Rorrison. Just don't say "I'd like to show you a trick called EVP produced by Murphy's magic"
and you'll be fine.

LOLOL this site kills me to bits sometimes.. THE BIG ISSUE IS THE NAME? As in when you perform this effect for laymen you are forced to tell them that you purchased an effect called "EVP" lol too much. Anyway on another note. Still waiting on mine so I'm just eager when I ask. Can additional noise be added to the reveal? Like a faint static or something like that? I watching Poltergeist this weekend and was paying attention to how the tv would call carlo-anne's name and thought it would be cool if you could add that little extra sound.

Yeah you can add additional sound but in my expertise in this field (oops - sorry for talking about this from personal advise as it's only in relation to try and mirror what an actual evp is that I have been experimenting, capturing and conducting for years, yet who am I to talk about what an evp is and how it looks and sounds - because the trick is called evp. Why, because that's what you are trying to capture) I wouldn't add static because when an evp is caught there is no static. The only other electronic sounds caught would be interference from mobile phone signal and from possible EMF devices but very rare. Add etc anything you all want, BUT if you want to try and keep as real as it can possibly look (which you should want to), then just stick to the voice.

Hi Allan, I'm really really interested on your product there...however, I got one pre sale question. Is the recording including the ghost voice you can give it as souvenir? which when they playback, they would able to RE-hear the ghost voice? If yes, that'd be FANTASTIC!!

Secondly, as far as I can guess, the gimmick involve something electronic ? (please Correct me if I'm wrong), so now the issue. how is the endurance of the gimmick? will the survive long enough (I mean like a year or so, and should we replace the battery regulary)

Ah I'm so sorry If my english gone bad Smile

Yep !

Alan, I think you have released a great product here ! Smile
I just hate to see how others may want to take what could be a "WONDERFUL Effect" ... and, turn it into a "Trick".
(just, fom others posts)
Yes, it is in performance and you do not need to say EVP.


I'm waiting for a post, from a Clown ...
Can, I use honk noises ?
That would be so cool, I could ask if my departed Uncle Crusty is here with us ?
There could be a Honk,Honk EVP.
Then, I can reply " I know the sound of my Uncle's nose, anywhere! "

Again Alan, did I say "I think you have released a great product here !" Smile
