Varhan (born Jan 21, 1969) graduated from the Conservatory of Jaroslav Ježek in Praze, where he focused on composition (professorAntonín Bílý) a conducting (professor Hynek Farkač). During his studies he founded his own experimental symphonic orchestra for the realisation of his compositions – seeking a synthesis of symphonic, jazz, funk and rap music.
While at the conservatory, he worked for many Czech composers as theorchestrator, arranger and conductor of film scores. Among these projects, the highlight was: The Scarlet Pimpernell (composer Michal Pavlíček)
As a student of conservatory Varhan created the Eye Wink Film Orchestra (in Czech OFO, Okamžitý Filmový Orchestr), which now records Varhan's film scores and commercial music. This orchestra is composed from the musicians of the best symphonic orchestras in Prague and new stars in jazz and ethnic music.
