HD Tracks
A composer/musician and three-time Grammy nominee, David Chesky is best known as one of the leaders in advancing research on high-resolution audio technology. Twenty-five years ago, David founded Chesky Records with his brother Norman Chesky. The label has won numerous awards and maintains the reputation as the leading audiophile label in the world known for pioneering new state of the art recording techniques and formats such as 128X oversampled CDs, 96/24 albums, DVD audio, and SACD. As part of the Chesky Records label David has produced and recorded hundreds of the world’s finest jazz and classical artists in hi res audio. David Chesky is also the founder of HDtracks, the world’s premiere online download service that delivers high sound quality in AIFF, FLAC, WAV, and ALAC, in up to 192kHz/24bit high-resolution files. HDtracks offers master quality music downloads from all the major labels and hundreds of independents in a successful rejoinder to the ubiquitous low quality proliferation of mp3s. Along with being a world-renowned innovator of audio technologies, David is a classical/jazz composer and pianist who has had his operas, ballets, and symphonic works performed around the world. David was the composer in residence with the National Symphony of Taiwan, and recently the recipient of the 52nd Lancaster Symphony Composer’s Award. As a composer and musician, David Chesky brings a unique perspective to the art of recording as well as to the techniques of music delivery.
