Musician Robert Jíša, a graduate from Berklee College of Music, hails from Prague, Chech Republic, and has established himself as a mature soundtrack composer for the last couple of years.
The title of this concept cd can be translated as “The Signs of the Zodiac”. The 12 symbols all receive a very nice electronic treatment, bearing a highly classical, sometimes slightly orchestral feel.
The relaxing, atmospheric music breaths a warm, romantic touch, featuring lots of strings pads, piano and flute voices with, occasionally accompanied by nature sounds and ethnic instrumentation. The Asian-oriented “Libra” and “Pisces” sound even more lyrical due to the intimate, carefully shaped solo voices.
Robert will spread his wings in 2009 as he plans to move to Los Angeles to pursue a career in film music. According to this music, I really hope he will be successful over there.
