- Second Round submission for the 2013 Newgrounds Audio Deathmatch -
Edit: After listening to the original purely instrumental track of Tir na nOg, Jordi Francis (etherealwinds) suggested adding some vocals. I had already been thinking about this myself, and after listening to and reviewing his Round 1 submission, Blind Maiden I was thrilled at the thought of having his vocals accompany my music. Long story short, that's precisely what we did. If you've already listened to the song previously, you may need to clear your cache and restart your browser to hear the new and improved version.
Tir na nOg is an Otherworldly location of Celtic myth. The Old Irish, Tír inna n-Óc, quite literally translates to "Land of the Young." This is merely my own musical interpretation of this legendary realm, and is intended to be both energetic and mysterious as it tells the tale of the ageless ones, and the few mortals who ever dared set foot upon its hallowed shores.
The instruments and music are mostly in the vein of Traditional Celtic, plus a few more modern additions, mostly of the percussive variety on the instrument side. SoundFonts every one of them, since that is what I have to work with, but I feel that the quality is quite good regardless. I hope that you agree.
