Robert Jisa started his music career at age seven, he was required to learn piano.
He studied Jezek Conservatory in Prague.

After finishing the conservatory Robert came to the U.S. to study at Berklee College of Music in Boston, majoring in film scoring. During the subsequent years in Boston and New York he wrote music for many films and CDs. Robert is known for his innovative use of instruments and sounds to create music. An example of this technique is Ema Kugler's experimental movie Echoes Of Time, where he used the rubbing of a gong to generate an edgy, metallic sound simulating the chaos in the main character's mind. When the phantom appears, Jisa uses a sampled Tibetan mountain pipe played two octaves below its original range giving it an unsettling kind of growl. This technique created the “instruments” with which he delivered thematic ideas.
