about

Ancient alchemy dealt with human involvement in the process of creation and transformation. These processes were symbolized and adorned with a galaxy of images and characters. Metaphors for the process were drawn from myth, history, and the simple tasks of daily life. Alchemists saw reality as an intelligent, eternally unfolding process, and participating in that process as the highest work. It was called The Great Work.

The Clarified Birds project intends to present music written by alchemists and philosophers such as Michael Maier, and treat is as a living text to be brought to the sensibilities of a modern audience. The vitality of the alchemical process is expressed by incorporating the spirit of the ancient texts with modern instrumentation. This process brings the ancient music into the sphere of our current lives, thus strengthening and renewing the intent of the original message.
