(2005) for flute, baroque violin, viola da gamba, and harpsichord. 10 minutes.
Commissioned by L’Ensemble Portique.

Microcast takes its name from a handy local weather forecast service. It features shifting clouds of micropolyphony, some updated versions of baroque imitative textures, and a lyrical violin solo. The flute part calls for multiphonics, so it must be played on a modern instrument amid the ensemble of early instruments.
