The music stopped. He died.

No the solution doesn't deal with a man on a tight rope, nor does the solution involve a bug or a small living creature of any sort being crushed during musical chairs.

And to start off yes to all three for he=H?A?M?

Was he on lifesupport and listening to the radio/television? And when the music stopped, it was because the electricity went out, which also cut the electricity to his life support?

Is a person(s) singing or playing to him? A bird? Something else? In his hearing? And they are hooked up to speakers? Are other people involved besides him and the musician(s)? If so, one? Two? More? Are they present during the incident?

Is any non-human creature(s) relevant? Any non-adult? Any female?

Has a crime been committed? Or could the death be said to be by accident?

A series of events is involved, correct? Do we need to work out the series? If so, did it take (from music stopping to death of man) seconds? Minutes? Hours? Days? More?

Is a person(s) singing or playing to him? A bird? Something else? this one. btw, no one is playing music to the one who dies In his hearing? And they are hooked up to speakers? yes, but what is "they"?... Are other people involved besides him and the musician(s)? faulty assumption of musician If so, one? This one. One other person besides the person dying is relevant. Two? More? Are they present during the incident? yes-ish

Is any non-human creature(s) relevant? yes. Any non-adult? \b[no.} Any female? no

Has a crime been committed? Or could the death be said to be by accident? this one

A series of events is involved, correct? \b[yes} Do we need to work out the series? you need to work out what the series of events pertains to . In fact here i will help some more, the music starts, the music stops and shortly thereafter the man is dead. If so, did it take (from music stopping to death of man) seconds? this one. Minutes? Hours? Days? More?

Was he dancing to the music? Was he producing the music? Was he singing? Performing live? Was he DJ? Did he stop the music? Did he tell someone else to stop the music? none of these. And a FA is in all of them.

Could he hear the music? Is it elevator music, by any chance?

He's mostly in a park--one within a city? An amusement park? A large wooded park?

Did the length of time in which the music was playing matter? If so-- seconds? minutes? an hour? more than an hour? If it had been significantly longer or shorter, would he still have died? If music had never been playing at all, would he still have died? Could the situation even have occurred without music?

Just to check-- he isn't blind? blindfolded? his vision is in no way impaired? the non-human creature involved isn't a guide dog? Is he deaf? Is the music stopping a warning that he isn't aware of? Is he in any way deprived of a sense?

Is the other relevant person the man's killer? Is the non-human creature the man's killer? If the non-human creature hadn't been present, is there any conceivable way the man could have died? Was the creature, in fact, present at the man's death?

Randomly-- was the music coming from an ice cream truck? Cause I always thought this puzzle would work with a blind guy getting run over by an ice cream truck that turned off its music.

So just to be sure - was a non-human creature and an adult human male involved? If so, was an organ grinder and a monkey involved?

Could he hear the music? no, but he's not deaf Is it elevator music, by any chance? no

He's mostly in a park--one within a city? An amusement park? A large wooded park? this one is closest

Did the length of time in which the music was playing matter? no-ish. see next answer given If so-- seconds? minutes? an hour? more than an hour? If it had been significantly longer or shorter, would he still have died? if it was longer he would stayed alive longer and may have not died.If music had never been playing at all, would he still have died? very likely, much higher than if the music was not playing Could the situation even have occurred without music? yes

Just to check-- he isn't blind? blindfolded? his vision is in no way impaired? the non-human creature involved isn't a guide dog? that's correct his vision is not impaired in any way shape or form, nor is the non-human entity a dogIs he deaf? no Is the music stopping a warning that he isn't aware of? Non-human creature an animal? no Is he in any way deprived of a sense? no

Is the other relevant person the man's killer? no-ish Is the non-human creature the man's killer? yesIf the non-human creature hadn't been present, is there any conceivable way the man could have died? no. if the creature wasn't there he would have lived Was the creature, in fact, present at the man's death?
yes,

Randomly-- was the music coming from an ice cream truck? no. Cause I always thought this puzzle would work with a blind guy getting run over by an ice cream truck that turned off its music. that would be a good puzzle but sorry no.

So just to be sure - was a non-human creature and an adult human male involved? Yes If so, was an organ grinder and a monkey involved? But, not this

Non-human creature an animal? Yope

Could this event happen in real life? no it couldn't

Is the non-human entity some type of mechanical animal? A machine? A wind up device? Like a stuffed animal or music box? An animitron? This non-human creature physically killed the man? Or was there something else about this creature that indirectly killed him? Was the creature in the same location as the man who was killed? Was there electricity involved like an electrical short which killed him? Was the man holding the creature when he died?

The thing is yopeishly an animal... because it is dead? undead? something that looks like an animal? an artificial representation of an animal? a creature that doesn't exist in real life, like a griffin? an animal cyborg? Part human, like a werewolf? Is it entirely alive and organic? Is mythology relevant at all? Is this yopeish animal's existence the reason why this couldn't happen in real life?

Does it have teeth? Did it eat him? Did it attack him just because it was naturally fierce and he was present? Or did he provoke it in some way? Did it have young? If the music had continued longer, would he have lived longer?

I think you missed my question before... was the stoppage of the music a warning? Was the music playing nearby? Within the man's (potential) earshot? Was the other relevant person trying to save him? Is he/she HAM? Is the man HAM? Gender relevant? Was he in charge of protecting the man? And he failed, and that's why it's only a noish on the killing question? Did the other person's function directly involve music? Or was the music a side effect of what he/she was doing? Was the person playing a video game, and the music stopped because the man was a character who died, thus game over? Is the man Mario? Was the stoppage of the music pretty much simultaneous with the man's death? If not, how much time passed before he died... seconds? minutes? hours? days? weeks? months? years?

did something fall on him? a tree? part of a tree? something that grows on a tree? you said this living creature isn't always an animal? is it ever an animal? a gargoyle? is what they were doing in the wooded are relevant? relevant why he couldn't hear the music?

*******************Spoiler*********************

The situation takes place to Mario in the SNES Super Mario World or any other Mario game. Let say Mario was in his tiny form and then got a star, not only giving him invincibility, but starting that classic song. After running throung many bad guys the music stops, and the player (controlling Mario) is a bad player and short thereafter runs into either a Koopa (Turtle like creature), a gooba (fungus like creature), or any other creature in the Mario World. Nonetheless Mario dies.
