Tír na nÓg is an ambient soundscape that may be used for meditation and sleep events; sound, visual and multimedia art installations; film, television, and computer games; live musical event projection and choreographed dance.

Tír na nÓg (“Land of Eternal Youth”) is the legendary afterlife island paradise in Irish Celtic mythology. It was said to be just over the Western horizon and was reached after a three day journey out to sea on an enchanted boat.

Composed in memory of my father, Jack Van Zandt, 1932-2005.
