“Voice Transmissions With The Deaceased” by Friedrich Jürgenson

"Voice Transmissions With The Deaceased" by Friedrich Jürgenson

"In 1959, Friedrich Jürgenson (1903-1987) discovered a technique that would allow him to record voice from "the other side". This is his story, written in his own words, in 1967.

In 1959, the Swedish painter and film producer Friedrich Jürgenson was recording bird songs. Upon playing the tape later, he heard what he interpreted to be his dead father's voice and then the spirit of his deceased wife calling his name.He went on to make several more recordings, including one that he said contained a message from his late mother.

Originally published in German in 1967, this English-language volume was published on the occasion of the exhibition "Friedrich Jürgenson / Carl Michael von Hausswolff" at Portikus Gallery, Frankfurt am Main, Germany, March 2004."
