This is my second remake of a piece of music originating from The Guardian Legend. It's an underrated gem of an NES game, that I sincerely recommend you watch, and play if you have the chance.

The titles for this song vary. Some call it 'Deep Blue,' some call it 'Snowy Fields.' I'd noticed that this overworld theme existed in tandem with some of the underwater stages, so I decided to take a leaf from that.

Inspiration also came from Metroid: Fusion, where you had a zone 4: AQA section with walls of water surrounding you, and a high-pressure glass tube that shielded you from the surrounding water pressure. I tried to imagine what that would sound like. If The Guardian Legend were remade today, I imagine that they'd take something like this into account, where you see the water around you, and all the creatures within it.

a bit creepy and could fit in the game very well!

Beautiful, very delicate. reminds me of the "memories" scene in Blade Runner. (Vangelis)

I'm going to have to check out this game, sounds like the music is pretty cool from what you did with it.

Troisnyx responds:

Bear in mind that the NES sounds will differ greatly from my takes on them -- but the melodies are still singable, and therefore, memorable. I want the names of those two composers who worked on that OST to be remembered more.

Awesome And Amazing!

A very great one here! The style reminds me of old tunes by Jean-Michel Jarre for some reasons.

Troisnyx responds:

I know it's a good few months after your comment, but are you sure it's not Jean-Michel Bruitage? :P
