About   DE/FR

Born into a family of musicians in Nîmes, in the south of France, Victor Hege has been immersed in music since birth. At the age of 5, he began learning the euphonium with Patrick Maurin, and at 15, the tuba and sousaphone. At 18, already with several hundred professional experiences in brass bands, groups, and orchestras, he went to study classical music in Basel, under David Leclair, where he obtained his first master's degree in pedagogy in 2016. Between 2019 and 2021, he also studied at the Jazzhochschule Basel and obtained a second master's degree in Jazz Performance/ Composition/ Production under Bänz Öster, André Buser, and Guillermo Klein.

Creation, movement, and exchange are at the heart of Victor Hege's artistic drive. In 2012, he created his first project, Error 404 Band not Found, with which he performed numerous concerts in Europe and produced 3 CDs. In 2016, he was joined by rapper La Nefera, with whom he has worked closely as a musician, producer, and musical director since then. His master's jazz project came to life in 2021 with the formation of Belinda Bones, an unconventional nonet consisting of 2 drummers, 4 trombones, saxophone, piano, and sousaphone, with whom he is currently producing a second album.

In 2019, he met Martina Momo Kunz, who asked him to produce the music for the theater piece "Pseudologia Phantastica" by the company Les mémoires d’Hélènes. In the midst of the Covid crisis, Victor Hege took his first steps into theater and, in addition to composing and playing the music, had the opportunity to participate in the creation of the play and act in it. Theater sparked in him a desire for a more scenographic approach to music and drastically changed the way he composes and directs his projects. With Martina Momo Kunz, he created the duo I Never Took my Ritalin, with which they had the opportunity to perform across Europe from the outset. In this group, Victor Hege raps, plays various instruments, and is also involved in music production. He is also inspired by his partner's acting experience and energy, as well as her musical creativity.

In 2019, Victor Hege created the KUGAWANA PROJECT, a musical quartet and pedagogical project. He took three other musicians with him for a three-week tour between Kampala and the rest of the country. Since then, he has been collaborating with several educational projects.

Since 2010, Victor Hege has also played in several high-quality projects. He played for six years with the Fischermmans Orchestra, with which he recorded 3 CDs and toured extensively in Europe and South America. He also regularly played with Traktorkestar, the Pullup Orchestra. Since 2020, he has been playing in the quartet of saxophonist Nicole Johänntgen, guitarist Sacha Ruffieux's trio, and in the project combining music and theater by actor/singer/director Michael Finger.


In 2021, Victor Hege stumbled upon a passion for photography by chance. A year later, the passion became his work, alongside music. His passion for colors, energy, and his talent for connecting with people naturally led him to creative portraiture.

Currently, Victor Hege plays the sousaphone, tuba, euphonium, and serpent. In addition, he plays the Colombian gaita and sings. His current projects include La Nefera, Belinda Bones, I Never Took my Ritalin, Victor Hege Trio, Kugawana Project, Nicole Johänntgen Quartet, Sacha Love, and Finger.
