Victor Gelling (*1998 in Berlin) is an improviser and composer who uses stringed instruments including but not limited to upright bass, tenor banjo, viola da gamba and guitar in addition to pedals, synthesizers and barely working self-coded computer programs to create sounds. Their work spans genres from jazz to noise to electric cowboy songs to complex music, which culminates in their large ensemble works with „Trash & Post-Chaotic Music“, their indie-rock „Slowklahoma“, their electronica alias "Hektor Cjelli", solo works or their playing in the Jorik Bergman Trio.

They have already played concerts with Jiggs Whigham, Robert Ames, Marta Tiesenga, John Betsch, Frank Gratkowski, Alex Somers and many others. Concert tours have taken them to Cuba, Poland, France, Spain, Italy, Austria, the Czech Republic, the USA, the Netherlands and Saarland. They have played at the Acht-Brücken-Festival Cologne, the Warsaw Autumn Festival, the Centre Court Festival Cologne and the Festival de La Habana de Música Contemporánea (Cuba). Texts of theirs have been published in the German magazine Jazzpodium, among others. They have been on the board of the Cologne Jazz Conference since 2022.
