Director Biography - David Varga, John Tumminia

Cyborg Asylum is, David Varga and John
Tumminia, a NYC Producer-Singer duo with
roots in the United Kingdom and the United
States. An inventive brand of electro
post-industrial alt-rock. Sharply crafted beats
and grooves blended with beautiful melodies
and harmonies make up a rich sonic palette.
Listeners are taken on an emotionally charged,
alluring, and at times, ominous journey.
All of the writing and arranging for Cyborg
Asylum takes place in David’s home studio
(The Sky Box). Guitar parts are sent to David’s
cousin, Phil Jones in England, where he plays
and records them.The process is very much a
product of the times we live in, with constant
digital transfer of files throughout the writing
process. It isn’t until the group heads into the
studio to properly record vocals and mix that
everyone is in the same room at once.
David and John, both with video production backgrounds, decided to produce, direct and edit two music videos after releasing Cyborg Asylum's album, 'Never Finished, Only Abandoned'. David is an Emmy Award winning editor and edited two music videos off of the album for the singles: Paradigm Shift and My Metallic Dream.

We wanted the video for My Metallic Dream to have a bit of a post-apocalyptic feel. To that end, we shot is an old industrial warehouse and gave the video a very "gritty" look.
My Metallic Dream explores the thoughts of a being who may not be able to recognize, process or clearly describe the experience of dreaming.
Since David is an Emmy Award winning editor, it was easy for him to edit the music video and put his unique touch on it musically and visually.
