The First Multimedia Production?
Atalanta Fugiens may well be one of the first multimedia productions ever created. The work was created inby Renaissance alchemist Michael Maier. The complete title is Atalanta fugiens, hoc est, emblemata nova de secretis naturae atalxnta. 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 fugieens, 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 a complete MP3 collection of all 50 pieces from Atalanta Fugiens, the 2 Rosicrucian canons, and the opening “Golden Apple Theme” from Atalanta Fugiens, for choral voices.
We have also transcribed the music from the original multi-part notation into standard modern notation, as well as transcribing the music into both keyboard and guitar notation. See below for information about purchasing any of these collections.

The early Rosicrucian movement was deeply involved with alchemy. While it has often been dismissed by modern scientists as nothing but an somewhat primitive precursor to chemistry which dealt with the naive idea of transmuting base metals into gold, alchemy in its most profound sense was, in fact, a highly sophisticated system which dealt with a quest for spiritual transformation and awareness through the application of the universal processes of nature on all conceivable levels– physical, psychological and spiritual: Maier was the author of numerous alchemical and Rosicrucian works, many illustrated with symbolic engravings of great beauty.
