"Did You Hear That?" is a collaboration of sound and animation from 10 artists here on Newgrounds.

All activities in this collab were conducted through private messages. Meaning members had no interaction with each other, never knew who they were working with and thus could not influence one another's interpretations.

Each member was told to hand in one random sound effect.The sound was allowed to be anything that they wanted. I took all handed in sound effects, and placed them into a random order. Each member was given this compiled sound file, and weren't allowed to change it in any way.

The name "Did You Hear That?" came from the idea that each sound effect was interpreted differently. So each member heard and envisioned a different scene than the others.

It's an experiment and an exercise to see the unique perspectives each artist will take when listening to the same sound file. It yields fun results, and is a great way to get the creativity flowing!

Thank you so much to the members for your hard work and efforts. This was a blast to work on, and I loved organizing it!
I hope you all love how it turned out as much as I do. I apologize for all the delays and I hope everyone understands.

Thanks again to LazyMuffin for another unique song to play us through the menu. Neat!

And for those of you who read this far, dig around in the menus. You might just find some special info :)

Another fantastic job, my favorite was from MasterArdvark.

While its true the sounds were a bit easy and simple, just what they are and the order can REALLY make a difference.

A very good flash very creative consept with very creative artists,but when it come to think about 4th one of the series i say you should use better sounds than this one.My point is we saw 3 times what can animators do with limited sounds its nice but they are not just limited they are also classic sounds.If we will see another part i prefer a strange sound set when some of them will make artists say:''I can do thousands nice thing with this sound.'' some others should put them in real trouble like ''wtf am I gonna do with this'' that would be a better way to show artists how creative they are.Somehow I managed to make this subject kinda boring but I hope I made my point

I completely see where you're coming from. When planning out a story to coincide with the sound effects it really can be difficult to match every single sound. Some of them are a little more simple than others, but I personally have spent hours pulling out my hair over just 1 sound or 2 in every one of these collabs. I feel like if every single sound effect was something that difficult it might discourage people from participating.

Honestly incredibly entertaining so I had to just add it to my favourites and the earlier comment about sounds repeating. Please read the information on the video before watching or commenting. Honestly when I heard that last sound I thought of exp gain as well lol. Great job everyone keep working hard.


Noodle responds:

It's expected that people won't understand what was going on here. And it really is a shame that they don't take the time to understand, because maybe they would really enjoy it! Oh well, their loss.

Thanks for the favorite! Odd that so many people thought of the exp thing. It really is a sound people associate with a message, like MSN or something.
