Renaissance Alchemist
Michael Maier's
Atalanta Fugiens



Atalanta Fugiens may well be one of the first multimedia productions ever created. The work was created in 1617, by Renaissance alchemist Michael Maier.The complete title is Atalanta fugiens, hoc est, emblemata nova de secretis naturae chymica. The publication is a complex early example of multimedia art made up of 50 sections. Each section contains an engraved emblem and has a verse and an epigram associated with the emblem, and a short prose discourse which elaborates an alchemical interpretation of the symbolism in the emblem. Each of the 50 sections also includes a short musical canon composed by Maier.
Maier also composed 2 pieces called Rosicrucian canons.

We have created a complete MP3 collection of all 50 canons from Atalanta Fugiens, the 2 Rosicrucian canons, and the opening "Golden Apple Theme" from Atalanta Fugiens.

You can also download the notation for the complete collection and listen to samples at the product informaton URL link.
