In 2017 she debuted the SoundNoise Trio with Sam Newsome and Reggie Nicholson at the InGardens series. That group, with the addition of guitarist Joe Morris has gone on to release the critically acclaimed Wet Robots. Wet Robots was listed as one of NPR Music's top albums of 2018 and received praise from the New York Times, Downbeat, and JazzTimes. The group Mutations for Justice, the vehicle for Victor's collection of minimalist compositions, or mutations, debuted at the Evolving series and performed at Vision Festival 2018. Victor has since been awarded a Headlands Center for the Arts residency to continue composing work for this group. With a goal of 45 compositions, expect to hear a lot more of this project.
