Doing is stranger than listening, but not as strange as watching.

Doing some particular action? if so:
Has someone done it? One person? two people? several people? many people? everyone? Is someone doing it now?
Is it done by one person at a time? two? more?
Is it done by a particular type of person? in a particular place?
Is one particular instance of this doing relevant?

Doing some particular action? yes if so:
Has someone done it? yes One person? in the relevant instance, there was one person centrally involved, and maybe eight more peripherally involved two people? several people? many people? everyone? Is someone doing it now? possibly, but irrelevant
Is it done by one person at a time? two? more? it can be done by any number of people greater than or equal to one
Is it done by a particular type of person? it is most likely to be done by people with a particular characteristic in a particular place? not really, although some places are certainly more conducive to it than others
Is one particular instance of this doing relevant? yes

Are any of the following relevant: science? music? this television? ducks? and none of the others. You forgot vegetarian food, but that's not relevant either. Isn't it sad how my interests don't even take up one line anymore?

Are the instruments themselves relevant? Are they keyboard instruments? Percussion (excluding keyboard percussion)? Strings? Woodwinds? Brass? Is singing involved? Humming, whistling, etc? Is the music actually produced by instruments? Is it electronic?

Would watching and listening normally be done at the same time? Would one listen to a recording?

Would watching and listening normally be done at the same time? yes - by "watching" I mean "watching and listening", and by "listening" I mean "just listening" Would one listen to a recording? yes, that is what I mean by "listening"

are the instruments in the violin family? harps or similar? guitars or similar? zithers? sitars?

If you had to classify the music as "classical" or "pop" would you call it classcal? pop? Or is it really not like "normal" music?

are the instruments in the violin family? one is this harps or similar? guitars one is this or similar? and one is this zithers? sitars?

If you had to classify the music as "classical" or "pop" would you call it classcal? pop? it is "popular music" as opposed to clasical, but it is not "pop" as opposed to rock, blues, jazz, etc. Or is it really not like "normal" music?

the one that is similar to a guitar; is it a banjo? Ukelele? Balalaika? theorobo? lute? gju? an electric bass? I hope it is one of those, because I can't think of any others; but probably someone else can!

Does it matter exactly what instrument it is?

Is watching so strange because a performance is strange looking? Because attending one would be a strange choice of way in which to spend one's time?
