“This visual art project was created to give fans a glimpse of my daily thoughts. I along with my fans are lovers of music and art, but to me those two worlds are one and the same,” says The-Dream. “I can never fully explain what I see and what I hear separately, it must be fused into one.”

Genesis is now available for streaming on Tidal. According to The-Dream, he had plans to use the video medium in this way for over a decade.

“It was a part of my approach. In 2005, I predicted that music would have to be coupled with visuals on a regular basis in the near future,” added the North Carolina native. “To hear music is to feel it, and a feeling no matter what is always true, but as they say seeing is believing.”
