Why don’t we see or hear any interrupts in music and video?

    Single CPU allows multiprocessing, for example, user can listen to the music
    and watch video at the same time. This is achieved with fast process switching. Why
    don’t we see or hear any interrupts in music and video?

    You are able to multitask because modern processors use "multithreading"

    Multiprocessing capability was integrated into the CPU so that users could easily perform multiple tasks simultaneously. In multiprocessing, multiple processes or jobs can be run and managed by the CPU.This is how you are able to run audios and videos without any interruption.
