Short Scenes

Ted

Ted’s first solo album Short Scenes was written in time off between writing and touring with Beth Orton. The record sparked Barnes’ passion for evocative, often sinister, filmic soundscapes and his experimentation with the interplay of these with lighter, comical and clown like elements.

Although a mainly instrumental affair it also features two songs with Gavin Clark: “Glass harmonica” and a cover of Carol King’s “So Far Away” and a rendition of “Teds Waltz” with Beth Orton.

Short Scenes was produced by Oisin Lunny and released on Narwhal Records in 2002.

“… his delicate, evocative music weaves a quietly irresistible magic, one of the best albums of the year.”
