The piece Moebius Trio by Rodríguez Picó includes the peculiar properties of the Moebius looped strip by using themes predominantly built up around long notes that give a feeling of a flat yet wavy surface, and by linking the different parts as if always bringing us back to the beginning again.

Shortly after Mauricio Kagel’s opera Staatstheater was premiered in 1971 in Hamburg, excerpts of it were performed in Barcelona, of which the section called Möbius caught the composer Jesús Rodríguez Picó’s attention.
Impressed by the strength of the image and the sounds, he thought that the surprising discovery of the astronomer Augustus Moebius -inventor of the one-sided strip- could be used in one of his future works.
The resulting piece called Moebius Trio includes the peculiar properties of this looped strip, firstly by using themes predominantly built up around long notes that give a feeling of a flat yet wavy surface, and secondly by linking the different parts as if always bringing us back to the beginning again.
As in other works by this composer, although somewhat hidden, it is possible to discover elements linked to other composers; for example, at the beginning of the work we can recognise Shostakovich and in certain Meno mosso passages, Nino Rota.
