Formed by Antonio Rosales (bass clarinet), Juan José García (doublebass), and José Luis Hurtado (piano), LOW FREQUENCY TRIO is one of the few ensembles in the world that plays music that was exclusively composed for them. Its members are highly active in the international contemporary music scene and as a trio they have performed and held residencies at the Centro Mexicano para la Música y las Artes Sonoras, Centro de las Artes of San Luis Potosí, Conservatorio de las Rosas in Morelia, Festival Ecos y Sonidos, Festival Internacional Cervantino, the Museo Universitario de Arte Contemporáneo MUAC UNAM, and the Palacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico, the University of Texas UTRGV, and the University of New Mexico in the U.S., as well as the Universidad Nacional de Quilmes and the Conservatorio Manuel de Falla in Argentina. Since its foundation in 2016, LF3 has collaborated with more than 20 young and established composers in the creation and performance of fresh and innovative new works for this unique instrumentation which collective sound is yet to be discovered and repertoire until now was practically nonexistent.
