Matthew Cannon was a part of the sound staff at Ocean Software. He has composed the music for many of their games from 1988 to 1992.

Music Development

Game Boy

Cannon used Jonathan Dunn's sound driver and composed the music in assembly.

NES

Cannon used Music Driver V1.0, designed by Jonathan Dunn. Cannon says that for the NES version of Parasol Stars, he covered Over the Rainbow, but due to copyrights, he had to remove the song. In the USA and European version of Hook, the credits do not list him because there's not enough space on the screen. However, in the Japanese version, his name is listed in katakana.
