One conveys the chiming of a bird, the other conveys the clap of a thunderstorm ... It becomes a percussive instrument.

Assuming you had asked an honest question, we can establish that it has now been answered.

To "add an extra flavor" and "an edge" to the music ... unconventional music requires unconventional vocals ... When you create an instrumental that is essentially "abstract", you must have a vocal that is equally "abstract" ( if the music is to have a vocal ).
