BIOGRAPHY

Judith Ferstl can currently be heard in many different formations (such as “Christian Muthspiel’s Orjazztra”, “Orwa Saleh Band” & “Gnigler”) in addition to her bands “June in October” and “chuffdrone”. Composition, improvisation, intricate rhythms, energetic passages and intimate soundscapes with room for silence, are part of her wide spectrum of sounds.

After completing her jazz studies and classical lessons at the MUK Vienna (Konservatorium Wien Privatuniversität), she continued her studies and completed her jazz double bass IGP studies at the Bruckner University Linz in 2014, as well as her master studies at the University of Music and Performing Arts (MDW) in 2019.
