CONTEMPLATION I, by Rodrigo Barriga
An exercise in listening and a contemplation of self and space.
Rodrigo Barriga 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. Active in the Bay Area experimental scene, he performs solo and with his own ensemble, the Rodrigo Barriga Quartet.
