Wut, like granular synthesis level compositional strategies? ? Curtis Roads springs to mind, wrote books about it. https://mitpress.mit.edu/books/microsound
Them electro acoustical dudes are about that grimy grainy micro life.

Basic channel is amazing but I don’t think it’s micro engineered. I think tons of time was spent doing live blends on the mixer, and the original idea put through many iterations. So even though one synth track might have tons of modulations going, it isn’t touched once it gets recorded, so in a sense it’s the opposite of microcomposed music.

to me microengineered means 50 tracks with 20 automation lanes each
