1. Short line 2. Virtual Melody 3. Nanotures 4. Double line 5. Diffraction patterns 6. Who's afraid of octaves?

Smaller than miniatures, Microtures are etudes in compositional illusion: a heterophonic duet (4.), photo-negative melody (2.), overlapping ripples of chords (5.), and a microscope slide of protozoan motives (3.). Although the pieces are parsimoniously short, they are interlaced by pathways of harmony and gesture.
