Rodrigo Barriga

Is a Mexican composer, performer, and audio engineer. 

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.

He participated in the 2020 Performer-Composer Residency led by the Westben Centre for Connection & Creativity in Ontario, Canada; and is one of the selected candidates for the 2021 season of artist residencies at Blue Mountain Center in New York.

Barriga holds an MA in Composition from Mills College, Oakland, where he studied with Zeena Parkins, David Bernstein, Roscoe Mitchell and others.

As an audio engineer, Barriga produces his own recordings and has worked with artists like GRTSCH, DLD, Matisse, Miguel Bosé, and Fernando Delgadillo.
