A Ganzfeld Experiment using Musical Targets with Previous High Scorers from the General Population

Journal of the Society for Psychical Research 1996, 61, (843), 103-108

An ESP experiment was conducted as a continuation of the previously reported experiment using music as the target (Willin, 1996). Sixteen trials were carried out during a period of six weeks in Essex and Sheffield using four pairs of people with each pair participating in four trials. Pairings were chosen deliberately according to previous above-chance scores. A chance hit rate of 25% was expected and a hit rate of exactly 25% was achieved. One pair scored 50%, one pair scored 0% and two pairs scored 25%. These results thus provide no evidence for the communication of music by ESP.
