Robert Rudolf (born 1963, Bratislava) attended private lessons on composition with Juraj Hatrík. Later he studied with Juraj Pospíšil‎ at the Conservatoire in Bratislava. From 1984-1991 he studied composition with Ivan Hrušovský at the Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts in Bratislava, 1989-90 studied with Yoshihisha Taira at Ecole Normale de Musique in Paris where he graduated. 1990-91 he studied musicology and electroacoustic composition with Francois-Bernard Mache and Michael Zbara. Currently he lives and works in Paris, having moved there in 1990.

Courses of computer music in Stockholm and at the Bratislava Experimental Studio confirmed his interest in electroacoustic and computer music. His recent work is inspired by the live electroacoustic performance and the possibilities of the Pedalophone (a live electroacoustic instrument). He takes part as composer, organisator and musical advisor in several contemporary music and electrocoustic concerts and workshops.
