DESCRIPTION

Susanne Miggitsch, Heating up the Seat is a transcript of hours of bus rides through London. Conversations, soundscapes, and announcements are meticulously written down, with priority given to the loudest noise or the loudest voice(s). The result is a dense textual fabric, a hybrid between documentation and poetry. In the process, Miggitsch creates a portrait of a sound environment that belongs to a particular place. It is not surprising that Susanne Miggitsch actually comes from photography.

Her textual recording of what she hears is reminiscent of a photographic process and its attempt to depict what is seen one-to-one. Both, of course, capture only fragments: The book is to be understood as a script/score and will be performed by several voices when it is presented.
