The Latin word "facturo" means processing, making, and in a figurative sense - device. Perhaps, this is the last word and will determine the best, what is the texture of the music. This is the warehouse, the device of the music, the set of its elements. And the elements of texture, then, what is it - melody, accompaniment, bass, middle voices and echoing.
The texture is very diverse. Musicians talk about dense chord texture or the texture transparent, consisting of two or three melodic lines or melodies and light accompaniment; about the polyphonic texture, which may be transparent and dense, depending on the number of member votes, and texture homophonic-harmonic, that is, includes a variety of items in any need for the composer, and combinations thereof.
Thus, the texture is really "device" musical works, but the device is not "horizontally"and "vertically". The texture is like a "vertical cut" sounds of the reservoir.
