Ghost Hunting 101

leave a comment »

HC Gilje sent me a link to Ghost Hunting 101, that provides a short history and various electromagnetic detection techniques used by ghost hunters.

It also includes classifications of haunting (developed by TriPar )

Class A – Classic Haunting
Exhibits intelligence, interacts etc. Fun/hazardous. Can bite, hit, shove, kick, and throw objects.

Class B – Residual Haunting
A “recording of time” that keeps playing itself over and over. Speculation: residual “psychic” impressions left on the land or building due to extreme emotional stress.

Class C – Poltergeist Activity
Activity conducted by a human agent, often a pubescent child thought to be creating a PK Burst or PSI activity. MRI scans often show an increase in Theta brain wave activity and possible over activity in the Pineal Gland.

Electric walks

leave a comment »

HC Gilje sent me a link to an ongoing project called Electric Walks (started 2003), by Berlin-based sound artist Christina Kubisch. Using sniffer headphones (that pick up electromagnetic waves and converts them into sound) she maps out hot spots in cities that are either very strong or interesting to listen to, and then loans the headphones out to the public. For an interview for Cabinet no. 21, she has provided 30 sound samples that she’s gathered while walking through various cities. You can listen to them here:
