The theme contains flutes, bells and other aquatic-themed instruments that give it both a serene and brooding tone. Unlike many other area themes in Super Metroid, it has yet to be remixed in any future Metroid games. The theme for the upper area containing quicksand is called Maridia Drifting Sand Underwater Area on the Super Metroid: Sound in Action CD.
This theme was performed by the London Philharmonic Orchestra and Crouch End Festival Chorus as part of Super Metroid: A Symphonic Poem, a medley of Super Metroid themes released on the compilation album The Greatest Video Game Music 2. The medley emphasizes a more lighthearted approach to most of the tracks, in contrast with their eerie portrayals in Super Metroid.
The theme can be heard here.
