e2 creates new sounds for Godzilla while paying homage to original

Burbank — Imagine the challenge of having to re-create the sound of the iconic Godzilla from the movies of the ‘50s? Along with the work involved, there is also the responsibility of staying true to the original and allowing all of those who already have an idea in their mind of what Godzilla sounds like to stay in the moment.

e2’s Erik Aadahl and Ethan Van der Ryn, the sound design team for the upcoming Godzilla reboot, didn’t take the Godzilla legacy for granted and instead paid homage to the original.

The pair, whose company is based on the Warner Bros.’ lot, have sound design and sound editing credits on the Transformers and Kung Fu Panda films, the Lord of the Rings series and The Tree of Life. Together they have seven Oscar nominations and two wins.
