Who is behind WoodPack?
Boris Čellár, musician, composer, arranger. After majoring in jazz guitar at the Austrian Kunst Universität Graz he started to become invested in ambient music and music therapy, besides jazz. As a result, his guitar-centered performance had been embellished by other types of instruments. To satisfy the need for a melodic-percussive element in his music, the artist decided to craft a simple instrument of his own. He was inspired by the log drum, an ancient instrument found in simple iterations across our planet. Boris set out to create an instrument with good resonance, perfect intonation and intuitive, easy-to-grasp design. So, the first WoodPack prototype was born. Encouraged by successfully crafting his first instrument, Boris has been perfecting the WoodPack ever since.
