|Description :||For many, the first traces of the Raudive Tapes were in William Burroughs fictions and articles. The fact is, these mysterious magnetic tapes, which
capture the voices of the dead, and were recorded by the baltic scientist Konstantin Raudive, are not a fiction but a reality (we are not here to judge their scientific objectivity ). These tapes, as rare as Lovecraft's Necronomicon, are now in our archives.
What we can find in this record ?
Two introductions by Konstantin Raudive and a large session
of exemples from his archives (July 1965).
Nive extracts from the Gerhard Stempnik experiments - musician
of the Berlin Philharmonic and close friend of Raudive (tapes from 1980).
A Raudive celebration including unpublished material by Paul D. Miller
aka dj Spooky That subliminal kid, David Toop, Lee Ranaldo
(Sonic Youth), Calla and Carl Michael von Hausswolff.
They have all composed an exclusive piece of music based on the Raudive material. It goes from a close examination of the material itself to a more
Who was Doctor Raudive ?
Dr Konstantin Raudive, a student of Carl Jung, was a Latvian psychologist
who taught at the University of Uppsala, Sweden, before devoting the
last ten years of his life to electronic voice phenomenon (EVP).
He published in his book Breakthrough in 1971.His early collaborator F.Jurgenson, whom he met by the very beginning of 1965, awakened
Dr. K.Raudive's interest in EVP research. Raudive spent endless hours
for the thorough study of Jurgenson's books ('Voices from Space', 1964
and 'Radio-Link with the Dead', 1967).
From an overwhelming database (ranging about 72000 samples!),
Raudive's mother seems to be statistically the most frequently reported
contact personality. She usually addressed her son in the Latgalian dialect.
