(bmf) Available today is the 18th installment of Cardboard Sessions with Rancho De La Luna featuring Dave Catching, Brian O'Connor, Joey Castillo, and Clint Walsh. CardboardSessions (a collaboration between Signal Snowboards and Ernest Packaging) is a free-form video series that brings musicians together to play instruments built and designed by the creators of Cardboard Chaos, where progressive concept ideas in sports and music are crafted from cardboard.
A creative exploration of the love of music and the chance to hear something original with no rehearsal, no plan, and no rules. Artists who have had the opportunity to play the cardboard creations in past sessions include ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons, J Mascis, Matt Sorum, Preservation Hall All-Star Band, LP, Dogstar, and more.
Rancho De La Luna, a hidden oasis for musicians about 120 east of Los Angeles in Joshua Tree is where this episode of Cardboard Sessions takes place, engineered by Jon Russo. The vibe is incredible, like a small home studio with all the gear you need, just this time the instruments were made of cardboard.
