Did You Hear That? vol 3

"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 :)


MasterAardvark is my favorite flash artist, and one more time he made me laugh ! :D
But I laughed for other, like Goat-Man. Love these "did you hear that" ! :D
(and I can't put stars with internet explorer)

What an awesome concept! I love how most of the colabs generally used the same progression through the work. Great imagination kudos, though, go to all of you.

I wouldn't mind if the animations were longer or better, but whether it's worth it, I don't know.

Noodle responds:

With the way the collab is set up, it really is hard to make it longer than 20 seconds a piece. Unless everyone contributed 2 sounds? I worry that people might get tired of it at that point. We'd be up in the 6 minute mark. My belief is that this works best in a quick format, where the viewers can pick up and learn the order of the 10 sounds very quickly and easily.

"Oh Boy, it´s another one"

Yes sir, being seeing these since the first one, i loved the concept and it´s a great thing to get together, wonderful submission for the value of the concept alone, thank you much for this!!

Noodle responds:

You can thank LazyMuffin for that. I asked to reuse the old song, and we just made up another one! What a guy!
Thanks for being a loyal fan :)

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.

awesome :D
