    What is "texture" in music?

    I have to write a paper on the various components of music and one of the components is texture and I'm not sure I understand what that is. What is texture in music?

    Melanie, I use Garageband to make songs. And in the loops section texture is a subsection. Most of the loops/patches have words like: abstract, accents, ambient, atmosphere, and seem to have a connection to film scores, like mystery, suspense, and, strongly enough, sci-fi.
    I think it's used in ambient music. Brian Eno is a good example and John Cage ore Cale or both? I don't recall. Maybe that helps?
