We asked 10 influential music ambassadors to each pick the 10 seminal tracks they feel deserve to be preserved forever more. These tracks form our Sound Souvenirs 100 chart and we’re asking digital music lovers to show their support for the tracks they love – by tweeting and liking. At the end of the campaign the chart will reflect the most popular tracks as selected by you.
You can show your support until July 21 when this chart will be closed for voting.
We’ll then take the top 10 voted on by the public and if we can get the necessary rights from the labels and the publishers, turn them into mp3HDs to preserve their musical quality forever.
Each one of these tracks features important musical nuances that add to the overall enjoyment, be that in the musical composition, the production, the original sound recording, the mastering of the recording, or the sheer energy of the performance.
Such music quality needs to be preserved and enjoyed forever – which is where the lossless mp3HD file format comes in.
Each audio track encoded with mp3HD is digitally perfect – a true sound souvenir – and with its embedded mp3 feature – one that will also play everywhere you play your mp3s today.
