Prospective 21e Siecle

Prospective 21e Siecle was established by Philips in 1967 to release Musique Concrète, electro-acoustic and electronic music. The imprint was short-lived with many releases only produced in limited numbers. The label’s distinctive covers were printed using metallic inks. The suggestive abstraction of each design hints at an elemental, mysterious future that is a perfect foil for the music it presages. The designer is uncredited and remains to date unknown.
