In July of 2018 we hosted the recording of orchestral percussion, ethnic woodwind and solo cello for the new film, Godzilla: King of the Monsters.
Composed by Bear McCreary, produced by Jason Akers and engineered by Dean St’s Jonny Solway (with addition assisting by Giovanni Giagu), recording at Dean St. was done to the working picture of the film. In Jonny’s words “one of the most demanding sessions I’ve done as there was a lot to get to and we had an extremely high level of talented musicians in”.
Although not recorded at Dean St., the film’s soundtrack contains a cover of Blue Oyster Cult’s ‘Godzilla’ and features System of a Down’s Serj Tankian. Bear McCreary discusses this on his website, saying that “this film could give me an opportunity to produce a new version of my favorite Blue Öyster Cult song, “Godzilla.” Moreover, I could realize it with some of my favorite musicians from the rock and metal community, including Serj Tankian from System of a Down and the rhythm section of the metal band Dethklok. “I’m in,” I told Michael, setting in motion a creative journey that would change my life in more ways than I could guess.” – Read his blog in its entirety here.
Godzilla: King of the Monsters is out now and the soundtrack is available to listen to/buy in the usual places!
