In the true tradition of Provenance Records’ Marks Of Provenance compilation series, "Textures" is a celebration of unique sound design showcased in emotionally-charged songwriting and composition.
Curated by Becki Whitton (Aphir), "Textures" features 14 new songs from Provenance’s current roster including Shoeb Ahmad, Arrom, KAIAR, and Sebastian Field, as well as the broader community of Australian art pop (Sandy Hsu, Imogen Cygler, Tuong Vi) and experimental artists (Tilman Robinson, Kcin, LOUV, silly music, Nina in Ecstasy).
The compilation heralds a rich year of creativity ahead for the label, which further established itself as a key champion of left field music in the Australian scene in 2020.
All proceeds from sales of the compilation will be donated to Bridging the Gap Foundation (btgfoundation.com.au
) - an organisation committed to improving healthcare and education opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians.
