Matthew Cannon

Matthew Cannon was a part of the sound staff at Ocean Software. He composed the music for many of their games from 1987 to 1995.

For Nintendo Game Boy music, Matthew used Jonathan Dunn's sound driver and composed the music in assembly. For Nintendo Entertainment System music he used Jonathan Dunn's Music Driver V1.0. Matthew says for the NES version of Parasol Stars, he covered "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" but due to copyright 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.
