    Not so much experimental as traditional, but I'll just put it here anyway since it doesn't make sense to have two threads for this sort of stuff

    MoMan, are you into Tatsuya Yoshida at all? Very atonal, but he gets up to some really complex stuff.

    Link to the Past was in '91 right when their jazz and classical genres were colliding. A few pieces really flew under the radar

    Reminds me heavily of Mega Man 7 soundtrack which is known for it's weird electronic jazzy sounding instruments

    OST done by Tatsuya Nishimura, Yuko Takehara, Krsk, V-Tomozoh, Kan, Apple Z, More Rich, Narinari, Ippo

    just skip around or ideally listen to the whole thing



    Here's a good piano cover of one of his other songs. There weren't dedicated video game composers it was always a hybrid of artists who started with classical/sheet music, moved to jazz maybe then got into electronic.

    This is technically vaporwave I guess, but still pretty good

    This new "Towerclimb" platforming game has a good atmospheric soundtrack but it's totally ripping off some Jap stuff I've heard before. Can't put my finger on the source material and it's driving me crazy!

    This link is completely overwhelming but if you want a massive playlist the Xenoblade Chronicles OST is for you, just give it a chance for a while and see



    you can navigate songs from the description
