1. Please contact textura at editor[at]textura[dot]org regarding submissions, whether it be for reviews, mp3 downloads, and/or videos.
2. If a physical copy of the submitted material is requested, textura will provide a mailing address; those interested in receiving reviews coverage are advised to contact textura via e-mail first and refrain from sending physical material unless and until it is requested.
3. textura does not review streams.
4. Due to the large volume of enquiries textura receives, it is often impossible to respond to each one, and no offence should be taken in the absence of a reply to your enquiry.
textura's premiere issue appeared in August 2004 and its 135th in June 2016; during that time, eleven advertising-free editions were published each year featuring experimental, electronic, jazz, and classical music-related reviews, interviews, and articles; in August 2016, textura retired the monthly format in favour of regular updating that sees new content—reviews, articles, mp3s, and videos—added throughout the month. In 2008, the textura label was founded, and three full-length recordings of original material have been released to date (details here).
textura is structured as follows: three articles and thirty-three reviews are displayed on the reviews | articles page; when new articles and reviews are added, the earliest ones move to the site's archives, accessible from the label | archives page. Eighteen downloadable mp3s and ten videos appear on the mp3s | videos page; again, the newest mp3 and video additions displace the earliest ones (unlike articles and reviews content, mp3s and videos are not archived). The header images on the pages following the opening display are intended to draw attention to four recently reviewed recordings of exceptional quality.
