The answer, and I am serious, is "noise". "Noise" is defined as sounds that do not create a repeating oscillating waveform, which is to say that they do not produce a pitch. All instruments have components of their sound that are types of noise. Many percussion instruments, including drums, produce more noise than waveforms with pitch, but percussion ...

"Instrument noise" would be the term to use I think. The German term, by the way, would be "Nebengeräusche" (literally "secondary sounds") which is less easily confused with "music as such". This distinction may be important in cases like "Jericho" where the walls fell down due to the "main sound" of the instruments according to the biblical story. ...

From the comments you make it sound like you get unwanted noise picked up as well. Human spatial hearing in natural environments is rather good at sorting it out and ignoring it.

Breath support is different since you are singing into the elasticity (or rather its absence) of the corset rather than your rib cage and there is progressively less elasticity and abdominal musculature to sing into. With progressive waist ...

I'll be honest. For glam rock, power metal, and quite a few others, tenors and high baritones rule. Certain types of music prefer baritones because the baritone range tends to be the most singable by the majority of the population. However, if you are an actual bass, you can probably take a few tenor songs down an octave, and it can sound quite awesome. ...
