Tom and Lisa Butler assumed leadership of the American Association of Electronic Voice Phenomena from Sarah Estep in May of 2000. Since then, they have established a web site with the intention of making information about EVP available to the public and to provide support for those who wish to learn how to experiment with the phenomenon.
Tom has a BS degree in electronics engineering. Both Tom and Lisa have extensive backgrounds in metaphysics.The two have experimented with EVP for over fourteen years and began Video ITC experiments in November 2001.
Authors Tom & Lisa Butler played and discussed EVPs (Electronic Voice Phenomena) which they believe are communications from the dead. The voices they record, Tom pointed out, are actually a "thickening of the background sound," rather than being produced by a voice box, and as such are sometimes hard to understand.
