about

'A Quiet Form' was originally titled 'Remixes, Reworkings And Reimaginings In A Quiet Form' and was released on Smallfish in 2009. The original music appears on the Koen Park albums 'Grey Night Clouds' and 'Everything In Shadow' (both originally on Experimedia). This EP partnered the full double CD release 'Remixes, Reworkings and Reimaginings' on I, Absentee.

Smallfish Records was a small record shop that was across the road from where I lived for a time in Old Street, London. I went in every day and found myself consuming huge amounts of independent music, and being amazed to find absolute gems no other store would stock at the time.

Despite the amount of time spent there, it wasn't until a few years later that I plucked up the courage to share my own music with two people: Christian Roth at Resting Bell, and Mike Oliver at Smallfish Records. I'd almost signed with two big labels years before and had been asked to change elements I really didn't want to, and found myself preferring to just make cassettes and MD's for friends. However, I just felt that Mike would be a good contact after our strange history together from my visits to his store. Getting immediate responses to some of my early work at the time was a huge thing for me, and it just sort of snowballed from there with labels getting in touch here and there which was very nice.

It wasn't until Smallfish was slowly winding down that I finally had something right for their small series of wonderful 3"CD(r)'s. I invited some really good friends to do some more minimal remixes and the E.P. for Smallfish was born. In the years since my obsessive visits and this E.P. was released, Mike and I became very close friends indeed and he was a huge influence for me with Home Normal, as well as being a massive supporter of my own music. I am very proud to say that Mike and Christian are still dear friends to this day.

Massive thanks to the artists for their great work with this, and their continued friendship.
