An Introduction

Jürgenson was born in Odessa, February 8th 1903. His mother was Swedish and his father, who practiced as a doctor in the Ukrainian was Danish. In his youth, Jürgenson trained in both painting and classical vocals chiefly opera. In 1925, the family moved to Estonia and from there Jürgenson went to Berlin where he studied with the Jewish bassist Tito Scipa. When Scipa fled to Palestine in 1932, Jürgenson followed as an accompanist and stayed there for six years. In 1938 he left Palestine for Milan and five years later, he moved to Sweden where he married and became a Swedish citizen. By this time he also gave up his music career and chose to focus on painting. He painted portraits of aristocratic Swedes and, in 1938, during a stay in Italy, were he worked as a Vatican archeologist, Friedrich was commissioned to paint several portraits of Pope Pius XII. Nearly 20 years later, in 1957, he received another request from the Vatican City, this time to portray Pope Paul VI. For a total of four portraits.

In 1957 Jürgenson purchased a reel to reel tape recorder originally to record his own singing. He started to notice a strange fading in and out on the recordings, later assessing it as telepathic messages and abstract visions. Jürgenson and his then wife Monica went to visit their country house on June 12, 1959. Friedrich originally brought his tape recorder to record wild bird song especially the Chaffinch. But listening back to the tape he heard a noise that vibrated like a storm nearly drowning out the bird's chirping. “My first thought that maybe some of the tubes had been damaged. Again I heard this particular noise and the distant chirping. Then I heard a trumpet solo, kind of a signal for attention. Stunned, I continued to listen when suddenly a man's voice began to speak in Norwegian. Even though the voice was quite low I could clearly hear and understand the words. The man spoke about 'nightly bird voices' and I perceived a row of piping, splashing and rattling sounds. Suddenly the choir of birds and the vibrating noise stopped. In the next moment the chirping of a Chaffinch was heard and you could hear the Tits singing at a distance - the machine worked perfectly!" Originally Jürgenson thought the voice were from our "friends from outer space", but later believed they were voices of the dead or voices from the other side.

"I was outside with the tape recorder, recording bird songs. When I listen through the tape, a voice was heard to say: 'Friedel, can you hear me it's mammy...." It was my dead mother's voice. 'Friedel' was her special nickname for me."

*Spring 1960 - a voice told him to use the radio as a medium. Which he did eventually setting the receiving frequencies to around 1445 -1500 kHz. In fact 1485.0 kHz is now called the Jürgenson frequency. The voices he captured often spoke in a combination of different languages that Jürgenson spoke. He named this new mixture of languages 'Polyglot' or 'Polyglot Voices' meaning many tongues.
*1964 - Jürgenson published 'The Voices From Space' (Rösterna Från Rymden, Saxon & Lindström Förlag publishing, Stockholm).
*1967 - Friederich publishes his second book feeling his first to be rushed and inaccurate. 'Voice Transmissions With The Deceased' (Sprechfunk Mit Verstorbenen, Verlag, Hermann, Bauer KG, Freiburg).
*1968 - Friedrich publishes his third and final book in Swedish, 'Radio and Microphone Contacts with the Dead' (Radio icy Mikrofonkontakt med de Döda, Nybloms, Uppsala).

Now labelling the work "Audioscopic Research", he predicted we would soon be able to receive messages through the television as well. Over the years Jürgenson mastered no less than ten different languages.

Friederich Jürgenson died in Höör in October 1987 and left several hundred tapes of recorded material.
