Storyconcept introduction by the author:
Genius is a rock opera trilogy that will include a
total of 33 songs (11 for each episode).
Even if the total duration of the Opera is about 4
hours of music for 3 cd, the whole storyconcept refers to a dream experienced by the main
character 'Genius' that lasts only 10 minutes!
It's known that dreams are often creating a time-stretch effect in our minds, so that a 10
minutes long dream can be remembered as a day long story...
Infact, these 10 minutes of Genius' dream has been described in 4 hour of music!
But we are not talking about a regular dream like
all humans have always experienced...
In this 10 minutes Genius goes too far and
discovers for the first time all the secrets of human's dream creation...
At 7 o' clock of a typical monday morning (exactly
the 20 of December 1999), his alarm clock near the bed starts to ring as usual.
While he's slowly getting awaken, listening to the
sound of his old clock, he finds out that its bells are playing a strange but repetitive
sequence of beats.
Genius is a smart heavymetal drummer and suddenly
starts to imagine that strange sequence played on a snare drum...as a drum fill.
While his immagination is following that pattern
he feels very strange and falls asleep again, feeling like attracted from his pillow.
After few seconds he starts to dream and he finds
himself in front of a big golden gate, suspended in the air, where 2 womans (Doorkeepers)
seemed to be waiting for him.
Initially he doesn't understand if what's going on
is only the result of his dreaming or if what he's experiencing is something much more
Then he slowly realizes that this strange dream
has connected his mind with an alternative reality...
Genius has been attracted and wrongly admitted for
a sum of casual circumstances into a strange and apparentely non sense parallel dimension.
Later he'll discover that that place is an
alternative world where human dreams are created and conducted.
To best enjoy this opera you should have a brief
explanation of some basic concepts of this alternative dreams creation world:
This parallel dimension is organized in many
kingdoms, one for each continent.
Each kingdom is ruled by a King.
The whole group of the kingdoms is called Dream
League and is leaded by the supreme Maindream, the most powerfull character...
The Kings involved in this first episodes are King
Mc Chaos (European dreams kingdom) and King Wild Tribe (African dreams kingdom).
Each time that a human starts to sleep an entity called 'Twinspirit' is created for
him by the Dream League and sent into one of these kindoms (depending of the continent
where the human dreamer lives).
An ID number is assigned to this Twinspirit to be
recognized from all the others.
This number is also the ID number of the dream
that will be conducted by the twinspirit.
Infact, when Genius gets caught into that
dimension, is identified with ID n.33 by the doorkeepers, and wrongly exchanged by a
This 'Twinspirit' is responsable for the conduction of his assigned human dream fantasies.
His existence starts when his human owner starts
to sleep and ends at his awake.
Its duty is to create all the fantasies that his
assigned human will dream about during his sleeping session, using a sort of multimedia
equipment that is provided to him by the Dream League.
At the end of his life (the end of the dream) he
sends to his human owner mind all the memories of the dream that he has recorded into a
multimedia support build inside him, of course if he has time to do this
If the human awake is very fast somethimes this
That's why sometimes dreams are not remembered by
All these Twinspirits are created and sent into a
sort of dream's factory, fully equipped with consoles ready to be used for the dream's
This place is called ''Twinspirt Land'...
Each kingdom has its 'Twinspirit Land' where all
the twinspirit can perform their job during their short life.
So...Genius is actually dreaming and laying in his bed that morning for those intense 10
minutes... but during that unusual dream he has the chance of entering that unknown
alternative world and meet the Twinspirit that is conducting his dream (his ID is n.32
infact it's been created just right before Genius arrival,right after he started to sleep
and to dream).
This meeting creates a sort of incredible
paradox...He's dreaming of being exactly there, in front of his assigned Twinspirit that
can't belive to see his human owner in front of him!
It's from that meeting that Genius will understand
what's going on...and also the reason why he was been attracted and admitted there.
The strange repetitive sequence of beats that his
clock is casually ringing that morning is exactly the same sequence that all the newborn
twinspirits usually uses to knock on the gate of the European Kingdom as a sort of
password to be admitted!
Being a drummer, Genius starts to dream of snare
hits that follows that clock sequence and this sound arrives to the European Kingdom
Doorkeepers that exchange it as a newborn Twinspirit knocking at their Gates...
As soon as the Doorkeepers open the kingdom gates,
and attract Genius a magic link between reality and that alternative dreams creation world
Genius sleeping mind is attracted and captured
into a Twinspirit entity identified as n.33, starting to link his dreaming to that
parallalel dimension and experiencing everything exactly like a regular Twinspirit!
He is really looking like a Twinspirit, but the
problem is that he's not a real Twinspirit with built in experience on how to conduct
dreams of a Human.
There is no dreaming human assigned to a
Twinspirit ID n.33!
He's only the mind of a dreaming human into a
Twinspirit entity that doen't know anything about how to conduct a dream and how that
world was working!
Soon as Genius would be arrived at his console in
the Twinspirit Land this would be noticed from someone.
Nothing would be appearing into his console, and
into the console of his assigned Twinspirit n.32 there would have been the exact view
This dreams dimension was born at the same time of
human appearance in the real world, but has progressed a lot faster and has reached a
evolution up to 100 times higher, so it's easy for
every entity of that dimension to enter into human reality if it would have wanted.
As opposite, it would be Impossible for a human in
normal circumstances to enter their dimension...
But one of the main rules of Dream League is that
all humans must be kept unaware of this mechanism and of this dreams dimension, to prevent
safety and privacy of dreams...could you imagine if all humans could know how to get into
that alternative world and interact with their twinspirit like Genius is doing?
Every human could have been entering that place
and maybe learn to conduct their dreams by them self!
The Dream League secrets and prestige would have
been violated forever!
When the Twinspirit n.32 realizes that the entity
he has near to him is not a real Twinspirit but the mind projection of his human owner
'Genius' that is dreaming of being there into a looking like twinspirit, he knows that
many problems would happen into the European Dream Kingdom (and expecially to its king: Mc
Chaos King) if this was discovered.
What is happening is strictly prohibited and very
dangerous and the European king would be considered responsable for this crime and charged
with severe punishments.
Genius is braking a basic rule with it's presence
in that place!
Even if his Twinspirt knows that what is going on is something not allowed he could not
avoid himself to conduct the dream of his owner...and his owner is dreaming of being there
in that moment!
Genius is obviously discovered.
Twinspirit n.32 suddenly becomes wanted by the Dream Leage Force (The police of the Dream League).
They need to terminate him before he would have
the chance to pass the dream memories to Genius at his awake, so that he would have not
remebered that particular Dream and reveal to the whole humanity what he has learnt about
dreams creation process and expecially how to enter in!
All the dangerous adventures caused by the
presence of Genius into this dreams creation world..., the meeting with his assigned
twinspirit n.32..., the friendship they develope during their adventures ..., the anger of
the kings of all the Dream's kingdoms and expecially of their supreme leader Mr. Maindream
against King Mc Chaos, that is considered responsable for the dangerous crime of having
allowed a human into his European Dreams kingdom..., the research of a solution to
all these troubles by Genius and his Twinspirit n.32...
These will be the main thrilling content of all
the Genius trilogy...
Will Genius remember this dream and reveal to the
whole humanity all the secrets he learnt after his awake?
You'll discover all the details of the story reading the booklets of the 3 episodes, both
songs and narrative parts....
Anyway, not all the narrative parts are acted by
the storyteller,there are also additional written paragraph that are very important to
understand the whole concept...so while you listen to the music...don't skip a word!
If, you'll have any doubts, feel free of asking me
explanations on the story, the events and the basic Dream League World concepts both in
the forum or by email.
I'll be happy to give you an answer!
So....Let's start with the first Genius episode on
23 october 2002!
