See COMPOSER trailer here



COMPOSER – a feature documentary film  is  long term project what was started by Varhan himself. We guess that he had started when he was born. (we have tried to finish this documentary film for couple of years and now we found Indiegogo  that would be right place for complete it. If you will hepl us...)

He loves to be shooted and recorded. During his life he pushed so many people to record his work that there is material for TV serie. (we want to collect all of this material and we would llke to share it with you in Production diary group for members. After campaign end we will lock access and will send you code login.)

He declares  that he is not interested in record of his life, that it is not important for him  but you can see how he loves it. 

He makes a lot of figures  and creates many situations. That what makes COMPOSER documentary film interesting, crazy, funny and  unbelievable. (please follow our youtube Production diary and Like Facebook profile COMPOSER)

We have met each other before long time and from the first moment it was seem that Varhan is extra ordinary person. Every shoes has different color, long hair, long bear. 

It was clear that he had made decision to become  VARHAN. He invented himself. He even changed his name for VARHAN ORCHESTROVIČ.

Magic person which is nearly impossible to describe.  He composed himself and all of life as master piece. You can accept his lifestory only from opera structure point of view.  His life is without compromises dedicated to music.

He composes all his life as  a symphony. He stadied matematic and as child he invented better plan for Prague public transport. He composes all and all the time and everywhere. It was clear choice to become composer. Sometimes his composition of normal life is not acceptable by others( as family). That makes documentary film more dramatic.

It is realy hard to describe him by short portret. Couple people tryed it but there was not enough  time to put all of his crazy mosaic in shorter film. He would be happy when he can have his own channel where he can brodcast his life. (we have to select,  complet and buy rights for a lot of materials from mass of people whose recorded Varhan material along his way to Hollywood Also we have to shoot new part of story.  It costs money and time. )

It strange but to have success doesnt meen to have more money. Thats we try to finance COMPOSER by you. We think that it is extraordinery story.

(You can see how is creating Hollywood film soundtrack in COMPOSER.

It is not ussual that you can be so close to the creating process. 

Please help us.)

He had  no money, he lost his family life but he had after all and all only his own music.

He was determinated to success because success can give him freedom to compose  in his own style full of varieties,  colours and multi genres.

Finally Hollywood called him and he could compose music for  a Miloš Forman movie Goya´s Ghosts in famoust Abbey Road Studios.

We have recorded all of these moments when he is composing music for film. There are many funny stories and special moments. 

We would like to shoot video inserts of featured dreams of Varhan. All of them will be in different visual style, genre and music.

It will bring us closer view to Varhans soul, there will be no compromise because it will be opulent multimedial orchestration...

As contrast will be documentary material from real life what is sometime as dream too but so sad that you can nearly cry. 

He managed it but has this success real value of all what he had lost along the way?


You can help us to compose and complete of his lifetime mosaic in form of 90 minutes feature documentary film which will be possible to see on big cinema screen with Hollywood soundtrack recorded in Abbey Road Studios.

Music for Goyas Gosts was recorded there and we would like to come back with recording of COMPOSER soundtrack. You can be part of history and you can see in our diary all preparation and also final recording.

Please help us to manage complet the VARHANS multimedial symphony in COMPOSER documentary movie.


We can guarantee  that it will be funny, spicy and opulent multimedial story what you have ever seen.

Please buy pledge, like us on Facebook and invite your friends for this unique multimedial party.

Thank you  

David Urban and Rober Bily
