On Week #3 of not being able to leave my house I decided to stop being depressed and start working on music. Inspired by several "watch me make a beat" videos that were happening online, I opted to challenge myself to make at least four beats - the only stipulation being each beat had to use at least one sample from a royalty-free "country music" sample pack I downloaded a while ago on some drunken night in the "Before Times" and otherwise would have never used in any tracks I was producing.

Obviously, the four tracks compiled on this EP "The Ongoing Global Situation" were recorded during the ongoing global situation. They're not really indicative of the work I'm doing as Corvx de Timor or C/A/T so they get branded with my real name - for better or worse. I didn't feel it was worth coming up with yet another one-off side project name for this since I've had too many of those over my 20+ year music "career" already.

It's "free / pay what you want".

Anyway, hope you are somehow surviving this. Obviously from the paragraphs long write up already I'm sure you can tell I haven't had much social interaction in over a month and a half now.
