"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 :)

Hit up LazyMuffin with a PM, I'm sure he'd be willing to send you a copy.

I like this concept, you cant get really creative and its fun seeing how each animator interperted the sounds

Quite fun, and i loved the idea ^^ A truly original way to make stuff. Unfortunately i feel the concept was dragged down somewhat by the quality of the resulting animations. Before Jeinu's one i had a pretty low opinion of things. some of these animations clearly had more effort than the others (props to the iphone one!)

All of them were pretty good but MasterAardvark nailed it.
You should do an even bigger collab after Volume 4 where we (the viewers) can vote and choose the sound effects before presenting it to the artists.

Interesting idea for sure.
I like giving authors the creative input of being able to select their own sounds, but maybe they could each put in 2 or 3 and the fans would pick 10 from that big pool of 30. I'll keep it in mind :)

I will be taking a big break from this after volume 4, and I think one day it will return. But when it does I'll be looking to do some major adjustments to the current format.

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.
