Car Décalé (Légèrement) / Because Shifted (Slightly) (CDL) is a long-term research through series of sound-performances/installations method to redefine space utilizing audio-feedback. CDL was purposely constructed in the simplest format without specifics. Aesthetic aspects such as the material used for walls, ceiling, floors, columns, furniture, people, etc. serve as influential components.
At Eyebeam on August 15, 2012, utilizing Eyebeam's vast concrete floor, Uenishi materialized her long-time wish to create a room-sized graphic score for CDL (abbreviation for "Car Décalé (Légèrement)/Because Shifted (Slightly)".)
With the score, she traced the "aural space" of Eyebeam that physically measured as 96.9 x 52 x 16 ft (80620.8 cu.ft = 12943.16 gal.)
The performance of "CDL traces Eyebeam" was a part of CT-SWaM (Contemporary Temporary Sound Works And Music) series curated by Daniel Neumann.
This video contains approx. 10 minutes of excerpts from the 30 minutes performance of "CDL traces Eyebeam".
