Expect improvised words, improvised music, peculiar sounds, angular poetry, unmusical music, programmed sound and text, things going whoop, people shouting, untuned instruments, tuned instruments, groups of people reciting, popping noises, some humming, and perhaps the occasional outburst of laughter or sighing.
