Is a Mexican composer and performer.

His work explores group relationship and communication through the use of openness and guided improvisation. His compositions include works for chamber instruments, alternative instruments such as electric guitars, and open instrumentation scores for improvisers.

As a performer and improviser, his playing explores extended techniques on his main instrument, bass guitar. In 2019, he released the album Silere/Continuo featuring performances of his earliest compositions. Active in the Bay Area experimental scene, he performs solo and with his own ensemble, the Rodrigo Barriga Quartet.

In 2019, Barriga completed a Masters in Composition at Mills College, Oakland, where he studied with Zeena Parkins, David Bernstein, William Winant and others.
