Time is a precious commodity. In this hyper connected and information soaked world, a bit of time away from the buzz of the world can be just what the mind and soul need in order to recharge and find our way.
With “Red Veil” Gregg Plummer gives us the gift of time.
Oh, sure, you can listen to this music while tweeting, posting, commenting and sharing (truth be told, I did all of that while preparing this for release). But the gentle harmonious drones and luxuriating pads call you away from all that. They build a time machine that can take you to a time without the incessant rhythm that our yearning beats out upon our keyboards and into the world.
This is meditative music, music for being present, for being in time rather than watching rush past you.
This is something that is crucial to our mental and emotional health, and something which I’m grateful that Gregg has allowed Free Floating to share with you.
So I will ask you to take this music and at some point take some time out of your busy life and just listen to it. Not while working or reading or doing yoga. Or even meditating. Let the music itself and the time you spend with it be your meditation.
Like me, you will appreciate that time and be stronger for it.

About The Artist
Gregg Plummer’s music crosses several genres, among them atmospheric, ambient soundscapes, eclectic experimental tracks, relaxation and easy listening offerings, and contemplative drones and space music. “For as long as I can remember, I’ve been creating my own soundscapes, plinking out mysterious chords on the piano or strumming odd patterns of sound on the guitar or keyboard. Since childhood, I’ve dreamed of creating unusual inviting symphonies, mixing harmony with cacophony, juxtaposing bright beautiful sound with dark haunting drones.
“Though I’ve learned much along the way regarding music theory and “right vs. wrong” techniques to creating music, I tend to ignore these basic principles and just allow my fingers to transcribe and decipher the thoughts and inspiration that comes to me as gifts from my muses.”
All tracks created, arranged, performed and recorded by Gregg Plummer.
