It will also release older recordings from the centre's extensive music archive, consisting of 600 concerts from 1968 until 1990. The label is run by the centre`s two music-coordinators Lars Mørch Finborud and Lasse Marhaug - with kind permission by the centre.
On the November 16th Prisma Records will release 3 albums as digipak CDs and digital versions on Itunes and Spotify. The two first CDs in this batch presents the soundtracks made for two multi-media installations presented at the art centre, with 36 years in between the two works (!!).

The third release presents two commissioned music pieces made for the Jean Tinguely exhibition shown at the art centre in 2009, composed by percussionist Ingar Zach and electronic composer Andreas Meland.
