Hi Nic, for what I read about it, I think microsound, isn't really a Genre,
but more a technique.
There are diferent ways to go using "microsounds", for instance one of the
most used/known is the granular synthesis.
You can search some stuff from Curtis Roads, he made a lot of digital
granular synthesis, and he also has some books about it.
I am sure more people in here will have more insight than me to explain how
to use microsounds on your music.

Best of luck in your journey
