Description of Cover Art:

 

This is an audio described version of the cover art for Emma Bennison’s album, Fine Line, which features a minimalist graphic layout in black and white.

 

The top two thirds of the square format design are white while the bottom third is black.

 

On the left hand side of the cover, resting right on top of the black section at the base of the design is the word ‘fine’ in black font. Immediately underneath, in the black section and therefore in white text, is the word ‘line’. The yin and yang, black and white effect of the two words on top of each other is enhanced by a physical connection between them: the stem of the letter F in ‘fine’ runs straight down and becomes the vertical stroke of the letter L in ‘line’.

 

The text is in Letter Gothic Std font. The individual letters are neat and unfussy- one of the few graphic flourishes is on the letter Is, where rather than a dot above the I, there is short horizontal line pointing to the left.

 

Still in the black bottom third of the design, running from the centre towards the right hand side, in the same font but all in lower case is the artist’s name, Emma Bennison. Continuing the pattern of dividing the design into thirds (and referencing the album title) the stem of the letter B at the start of BENNISON runs straight upwards in a fine line towards the top of the cover art, the colour of the line changing from white to black where it crosses onto the white background.

 

For those purchasing the physical album, rather than downloading the tracks, the CD itself has a matte white surface. In the bottom half of the CD (underneath the hole in the centre) is the title of the album, Fine Line, above a horizontal line, and below this line, the name Emma Bennison.

 

The back cover of the physical CD has a continuation of the black and white background; the two top thirds white, the bottom third black.

 

In the top left hand corner, text reads ‘fine line’ and underneath, separated by a horizontal line, Emma Bennison.

 

Underneath this, the track numbers and titles are listed:

 

Track 1: Monsters

Track 2: Kept It Real

Track 3: Who

Track 4: Changing minds

Track 5: The Ones I’ve Left Behind

Track 6: Fine Line

Track 7: When You’re Older

Track 8: Guilty

Track 9: Please Don’t Hurt Her

Track 10: Winds of Change

Track 11: Keep Them Honest

Track 12: The Master

Track 13: He’s Not Human

 

The final two track listings are in white text on a black background.

 

At the very bottom, white text reads ‘copyright Emma Bennison 2015 all rights reserved’.

 

The inside of the cover features the production credits for the album:

Production: Michael Shelley and Emma Bennison

Audio Engineering: Michael Shelley, The Green Room Studio

Song-writing and arrangements: Emma Bennison

Backing vocals: Vanessa Ransley, Tamsin Nolan, Michael Shelley and Emma Bennison

Guitarist: Dave Wilson

Cover Design: Kirstin Sillitoe

Audio Description: Lara Torr

 

To the right of these credit is the logo for the Green Room Studio: a round cartoon face. The only detail is two dots for eyes and a mop of brown hair. A stylized pair of black headphones wraps around the top of the head and the whole thing is surrounded by a green border, an inner ring of lime green and a thin outer ring of emerald green.

 

Underneath this logo and the production credits, there’s a black horizontal line. Further down, underneath the line, are from left to right, fine print text reading:

This project has been supported by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.

 

Then, there’s the logo of the federal government which is a tiny black version of the coat of arms; emu and kangaroo on either side a shield and seeming to perch in the branches of a decorative tree, with the words Australian Government underneath. Then finally the words Australia Council for the Arts and a stylized logo of a jumping kangaroo next to a full sun.

Audio Description of CD Booklet

This is an audio described version of the CD booklet for Emma Bennison’s album, Fine Line.

 

Separate files are available with the album notes and song lyrics.

 

Fine Line is available in printed or digital format. The cover of the booklet is identical to the album cover art (a description of this is available in a separate file).

 

Like the cover art, the booklet is entirely in black and white. Mainly pages with a white background and black text, but on some pages, large rectangles of black make up the background and the text on top of these is white.

 

Directly underneath the ‘thank yous’ and dedication, there is a landscape format photograph of Emma Bennison in the recording studio.

 

The shot is dark; in fact it’s in black and white, the background mainly the black and charcoal walls of a recording studio.

 

What light there is picks up Emma’s face, especially her nose, cheekbones, lips and chin as she stands in profile, turned away from the camera towards a studio microphone.

 

Her dark curly hair frames her face and she has a pair of headphones resting around her neck.

 

Some of the names listed in the thank you notes have been overlaid onto the left hand side of the image in white text.

 

Throughout the booklet, letter gothic font is used for heading sand track titles, whereas Arial font is used for all other text.

 

The song lyrics are displayed in columns, each song separated from the others by a dark horizontal line.

Dedication:

 

For Aunty Maureen and Uncle Len, who were some of my biggest fans from the time I was singing in church, who helped to foster my love of music in so many ways and who never stopped reminding me that nothing is impossible. You are no longer with us, but I know you are reading this from a happy place and that you have had a hand in bringing it to fruition.

 

thank you xx

Cover Notes:

 

 

 

Fine Line is the most honest work I have ever released and for this reason, I am proud of it. It has come about because I felt strongly that it was time to share my experiences of walking the fine line. Experiences of advocating for change, of being a sister, of being a mother and of being a human being with disability … through music. Why? Because I think it is time these stories were heard. Not only because they are my stories, but because I never hear songs about myself or others like me on the radio and I want to change that.

 

 

 

­The Stories: Track by Track

 

 

 

Monsters:

 

One afternoon I was watching a movie about monsters with my daughter after a sleepless night which I had spent attempting to silence the voices of the past and of my own self-doubt which were threatening to consume me. It came to me then that monsters are a great metaphor for those voices and the ones I watch other friends of mine who experience anxiety trying to silence on a daily basis.

 

 

 

Kept it Real:

 

My husband said to me one morning that some of my songs were really depressing and enough to make people suicidal! (He’s really supportive and equally honest!) So I decided to challenge myself to write a love song. This is it.

 

 

 

Who:

 

I spend a lot of my time working alongside others to advocate for change, both in my day job and as a volunteer. Much has been achieved, but there is still more to be done. This song is a very personal response to my fear that we are failing to draw on the wisdom and experience of elders while at the same time identifying young leaders with potential. This is putting organisations who have been founded by people with disability to advocate for our rights in danger of becoming irrelevant, at a time when our voices need to be louder than ever.

 

 

 

Changing Minds:

 

One evening, I was rushing to cook dinner when my son, who was ten at the time, asked “Mum, what is your best talent?” I was a bit distracted, so I responded that it was probably making spaghetti bolognaise, the meal I was cooking at the time. He informed me that my bolognaise was “all right” but said that he thought my best talent was actually changing people’s minds, because that’s what I do every day. I was fascinated by this. I don’t talk much about my work as an advocate, but clearly he’s very observant. Needless to say, it seemed like an obvious subject for a song.

 

 

 

The Ones I’ve Left Behind:

 

In 2012, we relocated from Brisbane to Hobart. I love my new life, but I really miss my family and friends in Brisbane, especially when it’s ten degrees outside!

 

 

 

Fine Line:

 

I’ve been lucky to work with some fantastic leaders in my life. Unfortunately though, one of them crossed the fine line. This song is my advice to leaders who want to avoid the disastrous consequences which come from letting the need for power and identity get in the way of the needs of the people you are there to serve.

 

 

 

When You’re Older:

 

Audio description provides a verbal description of visual action on stage or screen. After a long and fruitless day spent attempting to convince TV executives of the need for AD on TV, it was a clear choice between writing this song and a bottle of good wine. (I ended up indulging in both!) This is what I’d like to say to TV executives about the potential long-term consequences for them personally, of failing to act now.

 

 

 

Guilty:

 

In 2014 I travelled more than I have in any other year of my life, including to the UK for a month for work. I have learned to deal with the guilt I feel about missing out on time with my family, but sometimes, especially as I leave, it almost overwhelms me. I’ve tried to capture those emotions, which I know are felt by all working parents, in this song.

 

 

 

Please Don’t Hurt Her:

 

Note: I asked my sister’s permission before including this song on the album, thanks Fi. My sister got married for the third time in March 2015. It was a beautiful wedding and I was so very proud of her for following her heart. But when she got engaged, I hadn’t seen her for six years, (she was living in the UK),  and I hadn’t met her fiancé since I was three. So this song is a letter to him, to ask him, as nicely as possible, not to screw this one up! So far he’s making her happier than I’ve ever seen her, so this rather unusual strategy has obviously worked!

 

 

 

Winds of Change:

 

In my view, the greatest threat to change is complacency. It is tempting to get caught up in the excitement of an advocacy victory and lose sight of the big picture in doing so. We need to make sure that the winds of change we create gain momentum and keep on blowing, long after we have moved on to the next chapter in our lives.

 

 

 

Keep Them Honest:

 

This was the song which re-ignited my song-writing practice after a hiatus. In 2013, Vision Australia closed their disability enterprises in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. This left numerous vulnerable people, many with multiple impairments without work, and with limited future employment prospects. In the face of the announcement, blindness advocacy organisations monitored the situation from the sidelines. I became increasingly frustrated and finally resorted to writing a song – the only option. Having done so, I ultimately decided that as this was not my story, I would share it with the affected workers as a way of showing my support. They were so appreciative, that I decided to continue writing, and this album was born. So I thank them for their encouragement and hope that by now, many have found alternate employment.

 

 

 

The Master:

 

My good friend Peter Vance taught me the value of always asking the questions: what have I learned and what will I do differently as a result? This song is my response to that question on a good day! I hope that for anyone whose having an average day, this song reminds you to celebrate how far you’ve come and how strong you really are.

 

 

 

He’s Not Human:

 

This is a public service announcement to clear up some myths and misconceptions about what guide dogs are capable of. Thank you for listening.

 

 

 

Accessibility:

 

When I’ve made albums in the past, I’ve struggled to know what album covers look like and what artists include in their cover notes. So I’ve made a conscious decision to make sure Fine Line is as accessible as possible for people with disability.

Lyrics

 

 

 

Monsters

 

 

 

You’ve been lurking in the shadows,

 

I thought you might come out.

 

But you were scared, you were scared, you were scared of what you’d see.

 

You were scared, you were scared, you were scared of what you’d be.

 

 

 

Chorus: ‘Cause there are monsters out there that you don’t know.

 

There are monsters out there that you can’t see.

 

Can you hear them roaring in the night?

 

Can you hear them calling out your name?

 

‘Cause the words they say will haunt you,

 

And the fear it will taunt you,

 

Oh the words they say will haunt you all your days.

 

 

 

I thought you were getting stronger.

 

I thought you could beat them down.

 

But you are broken, you are battered, you are shattered by the fear.

 

You are broken, you are battered, you are shattered when they’re near.

 

 

 

Chorus:

 

 

 

When will you, when will you, when will you stop listening?

 

Oh when will you stop listening to every word they say?

 

Oh when will you, when will you, when will you make them go away?

 

 

 

Chorus: (from “Can you hear them calling in the night”

 

 

 

Oh the words they say will haunt you,

 

And the fear it will taunt you.

 

Oh the words they say will haunt you all your days.

 

Yeah the words they say will haunt you

 

And the fear it will taunt you.

 

Oh the words they say will never go away.

 

 

 

Kept it Real

 

 

 

We met when we were kids,

 

We didn’t like each other much,

 

I thought that you were dumb,

 

You thought that I talked too much,

 

But then we grew we grew we grew,

 

And then we knew we knew we knew,

 

That there was more to us than met the eye.

 

 

 

Chorus:

 

We’ve grown into the world together

 

And we’ve had our share of stormy weather.

 

Sometimes I’ve taken control,

 

Sometimes you’ve taken the wheel and that’s how, that’s how we’ve kept it real.

 

 

 

And so we tied the knot,

 

We thought we had it all worked out,

 

We thought we knew it all,

 

There were no fears no doubts.

 

But then we grew we grew we grew

 

And then we knew we knew we knew

 

That there was more to life than met the eye.

 

 

 

Chorus:

 

 

 

Every time we touch I know we’ll be all right.

 

‘Cause we’re exactly where we’re meant to be.

 

 

 

Chorus:

 

 

 

Who

 

 

 

Seen them come,

 

Seen them go,

 

Some have taught me everything I know.

 

Seen them rise and I’ve seen them fall,

 

And I’ve seen some of them do nothing at all.

 

 

 

Chorus: But who will lead us?

 

 and who will keep us strong?

 

And who will guide the way?

 

When you are dead and gone, when you are dead and gone.

 

 

 

Sometimes I wonder, what it’s all for,

 

I see the same faces in the crowd.

 

And when the darkness comes to call,

 

Will our voices still be loud?

 

 

 

Chorus:

 

 

 

And when the sun goes down,

 

Will there still be a moon left to rise?

 

And when the clouds all clear, will we still see the blue skies?

 

 

 

Chorus:

 

 

 

 ‘Cause there’s still so much, still so much, still so much to be done.

 

Yeah there’s still so much, still so much, still so much to be done.

 

Still so much still so much still so much to be done yeah,

 

Still so much, still so much, still so much to be done  yeah, but

 

Chorus:

 

 

 

When you are dead and gone, dead and gone, dead and gone, dead and gone.

 

 

 

Changing Minds

 

 

 

It takes time and it takes courage,

 

It takes spine and it takes guts.

 

No it’s not for the faint hearted,

 

Some don’t like it very much.

 

But there are some who haven’t heard us yet,

 

Some who just don’t know.

 

There are some we have to tell,

 

And some we have to show.

 

 

 

Chorus: We’ve gotta change their minds we’ve gotta change their minds.

 

We’ve gotta change their minds ‘cause that’s how we’ll change the world.

 

 

 

Well it’s easy to stay silent,

 

Easy not to think.

 

Just hold on to the old life,

 

And have another drink!

 

But don’t complain when nothing happens,

 

Say there’s nothing we can do.

 

Don’t complain when we’re not welcome here,

 

Though some are ignorant it’s true.

 

 

 

Chorus:

 

 

 

 ‘Cause we will fail, oh yeah and we will cry and

 

Some won’t learn, no matter how hard we try,

 

To change their minds, we’ve gotta change their minds.

 

We’ve gotta change their minds ‘cause that’s how we’ll change the world.

 

 

 

Chorus:

 

 

 

We’ve gotta change their minds (repeat 3 times)

 

‘Cause that’s how we’ll change the world.

 

 

 

The Ones I left Behind

 

 

 

ten degrees outside the leaves are falling

 

And I begin to slide.

 

From my past I hear you calling,

 

The ones I’ve left behind.

 

 

 

Chorus: Well I really really really really really don’t miss the weather,

 

But I really really miss you more than ever.

 

Really want to be there, really really wanna be the one who shares

 

All the little things, just like we used to.

 

Yeah I really really miss you.

 

 

 

It’s a special day and we are laughing

 

But my heart feels far away.

 

From my past I hear you asking,

 

Asking me to stay.

 

 

 

Chorus

 

 

 

Happy and sad they collide.

 

This has been an unexpected bumpy ride.

 

And I hope that when I get to the other side I’ll be OK,

 

I’ll be OK but until then, until then.

 

 

 

Chorus twice

 

 

 

Fine Line

 

 

 

Well the journey is hard,

 

The way is unclear.

 

It could take a day,

 

Or it may take a year.

 

And it could bring you joy,

 

Or it could bring you pain,

 

Or it could bring you guilt,

 

Or even possibly shame.

 

 

 

Chorus: ‘Cause there’s not far to fall from bliss into sadness.

 

A close call between pleasure and pain.

 

A fine line between charisma and madness.

 

So be careful if you cross that line ‘cause you may never come back again.

 

 

 

Oh yeah so keep your head screwed on,

 

Your feet on the ground,

 

Listen for clues in every little sound.

 

It could bring you love,

 

Or it could bring you hate.

 

I guess in the end, it really comes down to fate.

 

 

 

Chorus:

 

 

 

Who knows, who knows how the cards will fall,

 

Who knows what’s round the corner.

 

Who knows, who knows what the journey is for

 

So be careful if you cross that line ‘Cause you may never come back again.

 

 

 

Chorus:

 

 

 

When you’re Older

 

 

 

Don’t you worry, it’s OK.

 

It’s not your problem anyway.

 

And we can’t let words get in the way of vision.

 

 

 

Chorus: But I wonder what you’ll think when you’re older,

 

‘Cause this might come back to bite.

 

When you’re sitting in your armchair staring at the screen,

 

And there’s no end in sight.

 

Yeah I wonder what you’ll think when you’re older,

 

And your searching for the pictures in the lines.

 

I wonder what you’ll think when you’re older,

 

Wonder if you’ll wish you’d changed your mind.

 

 

 

It’s out of mind, and out of sight.

 

It’s just another human right

 

And it’s pretty clear,

 

It’s a monetary decision.

 

 

 

Chorus:

 

 

 

Well you see them in the movies, you see them on the news, you see them in the midday soaps and on the kids cartoons.

 

And you catch up on demand, so it doesn’t bother you

 

(Repeat)

 

 

 

Chorus:

 

 

 

Don’t you worry, it’s not too late.

 

You have the chance to change our fate

 

‘Cause we just need to know what’s going on,

 

Till the credits roll in the final song.

 

Well I wonder what you’ll think when you’re older,

 

And you thank God you got it right.

 

When you’re sitting in your armchair staring at the screen,

 

And you hear the end in sight.

 

Well I wonder what you’ll think when you’re older,

 

And you hear the pictures in the lines.

 

I wonder what you’ll think when you’re older.

 

Bet you’ll be glad you changed your mind.

 

We’ll be glad you changed your mind.

 

 

 

Guilty

 

 

 

Another suitcase, another place.

 

Another unfamiliar face.

 

Taxi’s waiting, another rushed good-bye

 

And I’m trying trying trying so hard not to cry.

 

And I wonder if you realise I wonder if you know,

 

Just how badly I don’t want to go.

 

I wonder if you realise I wonder if you care.

 

Just how much I wish that I could still be there.

 

 

 

Chorus: And I know you’ll be all right,

 

I know you’ll be OK,

 

But I still miss you every day.

 

 

 

I hope the journey’s worth the cost

 

Of every single precious moment lost.

 

And I hope my tears wash away all my fears

 

Cause I don’t know how I’ll do this without you near.

 

And I wonder if you realise I wonder if you know,

 

Just how badly I don’t want to go.

 

I wonder if you realise I wonder if you care.

 

Just how much I wish that I could still be there.

 

 

 

Chorus

 

 

 

And if you need me all you have to do is call

 

And I’ll be there with you in no time at all.

 

Yeah if you need me all you have to do is call.

 

And I’ll be there with you in no time at all.

 

 

 

Chorus

 

 

 

 I still miss you every day. Repeat x3

 

 

 

Please Don’t Hurt Her

 

 

 

Well I didn’t come down in the last shower, I know there’s something special going on.

 

Been keeping an eye on this spring flower, though it hasn’t been blooming all that long.

 

I don’t want to stand in your way, but I really do need to say:

 

 

 

Chorus: Please don’t hurt her,

 

Please don’t make her cry.

 

‘Cause she deserves more than that it’s true.

 

I hope you don’t mind that I’m telling you this.

 

It’s just that I love her too.

 

 

 

Well as long as you can make her happy,

 

That’s all that matters to me.

 

And it seems you’re doing OK on that score, as far as I can see.

 

And I don’t want to stand in your way, but I really do need to say, yeah

 

 

 

Chorus:

 

 

 

And I can’t wait to meet you and wish you both well.

 

But I just had to tell you how I feel.

 

Well I know we’ve been apart for such a long time,

 

But she’s still very precious to me so

 

 

 

Chorus: (repeat twice)

 

 

 

Winds of Change

 

 

 

Well I know it hasn’t been easy.

 

And it hasn’t been much fun.

 

All you want to do is rest now.

 

But our journey’s just begun.

 

 

 

Chorus: The winds of change are blowing strong

 

They’re moving the mountains that have stood in our way for so long.

 

And we’ve gotta make sure they keep on blowing

 

Long after we are gone, long after we are gone.

 

 

 

We only get one chance.

 

And we can’t afford to fail.

 

We’ve gotta make this count now.

 

Or our ship will surely sail.

 

 

 

Chorus

 

 

 

We’ve gotta keep them blowing

 

Long after we are gone.

 

 

 

Chorus

 

Repeat chorus

 

 

 

Keep Them Honest

 

 

 

He’s been there for twenty years,

 

It’s all he knows.

 

He’s got nothing else to do

 

And nowhere else to go.

 

And they say that it’s progress

 

And that they’ll find something else that he can do.

 

 

 

Chorus: But whose gonna keep them honest?

 

Whose gonna make them pay?

 

When the people with the power

 

Just keep looking the other way.

 

Whose gonna keep them honest?

 

Whose gonna stand and fight?

 

When the people who can’t speak have no rights.

 

 

 

He might not work again,

 

But hey, they’ve cut their losses.

 

Well he might lose everything,

 

But they’ll keep on paying the bosses.

 

And they’ll sit at the board room table

 

And they’ll ruin people’s lives.

 

 

 

Chorus:

 

 

 

Well they say they’re engaging in consultation,

 

Monitoring the situation.

 

But I ask myself,

 

Is anyone really being heard?

 

(Repeat)

 

 

 

Chorus:

 

Oh yeah we’ve gotta keep them honest,

 

We’ve gotta stand and fight.

 

So the people who can’t speak,

 

They have rights.

 

 

 

The Master

 

 

 

Been on a journey that I didn’t always want to take.

 

Made some decisions that I didn’t always want to make.

 

And I have said good-byes that I didn’t always want to say.

 

Had to go away, start a brand new day

 

But what have I learned? What have I learned?

 

 

 

Chorus:

 

I am now the master, I hold all the keys.

 

Nobody can take, nobody can take, nobody can take that away from me.

 

I am now the master of everything I’ll be.

 

Nobody can take, nobody can take, nobody can take that from me.

 

 

 

Been caught out in the headlights when I just wanted to go home

 

Been part of the crowd when I wanted to be alone

 

And I have hurt some people that I didn’t really want to hurt

 

Some of them deserved it some they treated me like dirt.

 

And what have I learned? Yeah what have I learned?

 

 

 

Chorus:

 

 

 

And if they try I will think them down.

 

And if they try, I will think them to the ground.

 

‘Cause I am strong, yeah I am strong now, I am strong.

 

 

 

Chorus (repeat)

 

 

 

He’s Not Human

 

 

 

Every day when I walk down the street,

 

People ask me questions.

 

And with most of the people I meet,

 

I have no objections.

 

Some of them are thought-provoking,

 

Some of them they leave me choking,

 

Some of them I wonder, are you joking?

 

 

 

Chorus: ‘Cause he can’t see when the lights turn green and he can’t read the signs on a TV screen

 

‘Cause guess what? He’s not human!

 

And he can’t read the numbers on the elevator floors and he can’t read the numbers on my hotel room door

 

‘Cause guess what? He’s not human!

 

 

 

And I’m not saying he’s not smart

 

And I’m not saying he’s not clever.

 

I wouldn’t want to live without him.

 

Oh but I’m just saying that he can’t read, or write, or count,

 

Or make my coffee.

 

 

 

Chorus:

 

Every day when I walk down the street,

 

People ask me questions.

 

And with most of the people I meet,

 

I have no objection.
