22 have defined their own musical domain as an eclectic, melodic, energetic and stadium-appealing progressive rock outfit. „You Are Creating“ is a conceptual album divided into two limbs, making it up to the listener to create a whole of these two parts, trusting the active participation of the listener. “You Are Creating” is an assertion made by 22 that the listener is the one creating the effects of the music they are hearing. Pitch and rhythm in different arrangements (songs) are just tools provided by the artist, which the listener utilizes and thus creates the experience of music.
The band claims that it is not the artist’s stories and emotions that is “given” to the listener. The listener uses music actively to explore their own emotional, mental and spiritual realms. Therefore, music is able to create experiences on such an intimate and personal level, having millions of different people from different cultures thinking: “they are singing about my life!” or “that’s exactly how i feel” in response to hearing the exact same recording of the exact song. Consciously or not, humans use music to explore their own life, world and being.
Every song on “You Are Creating” is made with the above-mentioned mechanism as an all-permeating creative principle.
"You Are Creating" is available in the following editions:
- Double Gatefold LP incl. 'Limb1' on mint coloured vinyl and 'Limb2' on purple coloured vinyl, printed innersleeves and download code
- 2CD Digipak
- Digital (as single albums "You Are Creating: Limb1" & "You Are Creating: Limb2")
