Is this cart in the same vein as Backgammon in that it has an odd memory configuration and thus will not work properly in O2EM? I just get some really odd sounds and abrupt starts and stops. I was looking for info about it but haven't seen anything other than that it uses a memory scheme akin to Backgammon. Any info would be helpful, thanks.

Backgammon is a standard cart, but the timing of this game causes problems in O2em. Musician has the same memory scheme as 4-in-1 row. But the main problem of Musician for O2em is the way the tones are generated: not by the videochip, but by switching the sound output on and off with the timer function of the processor.
