  • incidental expenses or when in context, just incidentals — minor expenses not budgeted or not specified
  • incidental music — music in a play, television program, radio program, video game or some other form not primarily musical. (The term is less frequently applied to film music, with such music being referred to instead as the film score or soundtrack.)
