ISOLATION Studies 1 to 4 are outgrowths of the installation 500hz-245hz-500hzø-246hz from artist S. Mercure (Persona Mercure).
Developed over the course of 2016 and 2017, the installation consists of a sound exchange between two speakers positioned face-to-face and uses a frequency of 500 hertz as a starting point.

These Studies are the result of experiments using only audio from the installation as a sound source. Sound waves have been modified in amplitude, frequency shifted, and, in some cases, multiplied with the help of certain effects and send channel routings. No additional sounds have been used and any kind of editing as been avoided.
