Mr. Varga who writes in both electronic and acoustic mediums, has had music performed in numerous different settings. From theater productions, film, television and interactive web sights and CD ROMs to commercials, video games and concert halls, his music and sound design have heightened the experience of audiences both nationally and internationally.
He is the son of concert violinists Ruben Varga and Norma Varga. For several generations, his family has been involved in music. After studying with such prestigious composers as: David Del Tredici, Robert Starrer, and Tania Leon, he completed his first degree in traditional composition and went on to achieve a second degree in music technology. He followed this with an MFA in television production which provided him with a wide knowledge of video production and post production. Mr. Varga recently provided the music for the independent film, "Imposter" and also “Happy Ending” which premiered at CineGear Expo at Paramount Studios and The Newport Beach Film Festival respectively. He has just finished scoring two new films, "The Windermere Guest" and "Old Monster", that are about to hit the festival circuit. Some other projects include the theme song for TLC's series, "Wedded To Perfection", theme music for Discovery Channel's series "Disappeared" and the theme music for The Weather Channel's series, "Storm Riders". David also composed the theme music and contributed to the overall sound and soundtrack of Sundance Channel's series, "Eco Trip-The Real Cost Of Living" and MSNBC's "Future Earth-100 Heart Beats". In addition, he composed music for the video game, “Culpa Innata” by Momentum Digital Media Technologies. Other recent works include music for several commercials, the soundtrack for Strindberg’s “The Ghost Sonata” at the New York Strindberg Festival, the soundtrack for the PBS documentary "Different is the New Normal" and the theme music for NBC's "Dateline" which can also be heard on MSNBC, Discovery ID, OWN and TLC in various crime documentaries.
