Egid Joechl was born on 7.12.1982 in Kitzbuehel (Tyrol) and grew up in the surrounding area.


He received his first instrumental lessons on the accordion and trumpet. Later, he studied composition and music theory at the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz. Joechl writes works for different instrumentations and different styles, with a focus on free-tonal "new" music and sound installations.


From the tradition of original alpine folk music, Joechl explains his impulsive and intuitive approach to making music and composing. The often destructive design on different levels is also an important element of his compositional technique. Individual musical elements are deliberately let loose on each other, so that not only instruments play against each other, but also individual bar sections and even notes face each other.


His works have been performed on various occasions at home and abroad. In 2018, for example, he was Artist in Residence in Lisbon, and in 2019 in New York. In 2021, he was awarded the Hilde Zach Composition Scholarship of the City of Innsbruck.


Egid Joechl currently lives and works near Innsbruck.
