Music Video released 4th September 2020


'Everything I Know', Anna Paddick - Music Video.

Released 4/09/20


A word from Anna about 'Everything I Know'.


'The process of giving form to this song and video clip has allowed me to stay with a multifaceted and evolving question, ‘What do we think we know now of isolation, of interconnectedness, and possible ways of being with the truths of ourselves?’ I’ve explored this question through the lens of my own experiencing and offer it now to you as a springboard for further experiencing and meaning-making.


This song emerged through a multimodal exploration, through feeling, painting, sculpting, dreaming, enacting, drawing, talking, listening, moving, playing, writing, singing, and making sounds in relation to (and as an enactment of) some of my relational patterns, especially in the context of holding experiences of trauma, and experimenting with degrees of openness and collaborative holding.


I don’t quite know how to adequately acknowledge the people who have held this process with me, some of whom I name below:


Ben Paddick: Guitarist, Musical Collaborator

Christian Meyer: Guitarist, Keys/Synth, Musical Collaborator

Alan Dinh: Bassist, Synth, Musical Collaborator

Markus Meyer: Studio Engineer (Recording)

Julian Meyer: Studio Engineer (Mixing and Mastering)

Vanessa White: Videographer, Editor, Collaborator

Kevin Jeynes: Performance Artist, Co-inquirer

Rod Price: Foley Sound


While this offering represents ‘Everything I Know’, I would invite an edgelessness into the meaning of that statement, whereby we might include everything we know, everything we don’t know, everything we are un-knowing, and everything we are coming to know, in process, always.


I hope that this song and video may serve you as an invitation to gently notice yourself in relationship with it, and as a gesture of being alongside you in relating to the question, ‘What do we think we know now of isolation, of interconnectedness, and possible ways of being with the truths of ourselves?’


My intention in sharing art is to be part of a kind, honest, and curious conversation that can serve us all. In the spirit of that I would welcome any creative responses that may arise. Tag me in a post or whatevs.


In these challenging times, while Covid 19 has erased so many possibilities for interaction and participation, may we be artful and courageous in creating new ways of collaborating and feeling the presence of one another.


With love and gratitude,


Anna Paddick'
