Jack Schell has over 20 years of experience as a composer, musician and audio engineer. His creations, drawing from the broadest range of musical styles and genres, evoke visual images in listeners' minds to form what may be called 'soundscapes' or 'musical art pieces'.
Mr. Schell's compositions have been used in television on syndicated sports shows and in local radio and television advertising. Jack's music has also been featured in promotional videos and websites for luxury resort properties. He often collaborates with Earl Slick, famed lead guitarist for David Bowie, and provides original music, score beds, sounds and tones for animations by New York based Jayel Draco and Corinne Alexis Hall. His music has been used throughout in over 70 episodes of The Nancy Boys, a cable access television series. Currently Jack is composing the theme song, score beds and sounds for a pilot television series on a paranormal supernatural study team's investigations.
His significant achievements include: creating original scores and melodies; producing a discography of albums each with a unique personality; fashioning corporate theme songs; composing and recording for television radio and the internet; and performing under tight deadlines in a recording studio environment.
Jack recently relocated his operation to Las Vegas, where his Blue Carpet Studio offers a full complement of creative services to assist professionals, companies and organizations who seek a unique sound that takes their prized project or business image to the next level.
