Atalanta Fugiens

The First
Multimedia Production?



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 piece composed by Maier.
Maier also composed 2 pieces called Rosicrucian canons.

We have created an MP3 collection for organ solo of all 50 pieces, the two Rosicrucian canons and the opening "Golden Apple" theme.

You can listen to Mp3 samples and find out more information at the product information URL.
