Point Music was a record label that was started in 1992 as a joint venture between Philips Classics and Michael Riesman and Philip Glass’s Euphorbia Productions. In 1999, Decca Records became its distributor when it absorbed Philips in the aftermath of the merger that created Universal Music. It originally specialized in cutting-edge contemporary Western classical music, but it expanded to include film scores, some world music, and rock–classical crossover projects. It was shut down in 2002.

In September 2009, Universal Music released a POINT Music compilation named XVI Reflections on Classical Music,[1] which explored the connections between cutting edge classical and electronic music. Whether this is the beginning of a series of compilations has yet to be confirmed.
