Viking Funeral:
Jesse’s Girl

Sound intervention collective Viking Funeral (Carlos Ascurra and Juan Gonzalez) present “Jesse’s Girl”, an acoustic guitar/amplifier module and a second module, a Theremin, manipulated by a series of different objects to feel austere and dark. 

A representation of a badly acted soap opera inside the confines and comfort of a warm 1970's California Summer, "Jesse's Girl" has a new boyfriend while Jesse is left to witness his girl falling deeply for her new man. 

The far wall of the space will contain a mural of a sunset, with a couple holding hands. "Jesse's Girl" contains this sitar-like sound that feels meditative and euphoric while the Theremin has more of a somber sound like the cries of a young man caught "in a tidal wave of teenage angst."
