In the 21st century, we have access to the most information and tools in the history of time – how can we use this to create meaningful experience? TEXTURE strives to use muti- and cross – disciplinary activities in various formats as a framework to curate an idea. To inspire someone with a new idea is the most powerful form of education. Learning by doing – learning by authentic experience – learning from each other.

Texture is unique in its combination of spatial curation, music programming, and intense preparation. This first year, we brought a diverse range of artists who are on the cutting edge of house/techno/electronic music, including several artist’s Detroit debuts.

The thematic spatial elements we bring to each event try to push the boundaries of how we, and our guests, interact with space and time. We are constantly work on collaborations with many local artists to create spatial installations at events.

Also, equally important, is showcasing a healthy balance of local guests with great record collections, taste, and skill. Having people with music knowledge and interests is integral to the development and future of Texture — and these individuals reflect the personal philosophies that our team shares
