Darn good question. When I first started work on the Bard guild years ago that was one of the bullet points I had. If that's still the answer we're going with is another question.
Essentially they're a weird piece of lore from the Rigby era of development that was never really explained or documented in any meaningful way (At least not that has survived to current day).
Sound is not an element. Bards experience the elements in a fundamentally different way then Warrior Mages, however they do dabble a bit in more direct invocations. (In fact, there's an entire spellbook for that!)
While there is certainly a musical and/or lyrical aspect of the Bardic confound (In as much as we've defined it), I wouldn't call it mundane. There's something different about a Bard's music vs anyone else's. And that's almost certainly tied to the final form Bardic Lore will find itself in.
>>Bards seem to be super into aether as an element moreso than Warrior Mages if I had to pin them to any particular planar thing
While Warrior Mages access elements roughly equally, Bards are decidedly skewed. In rough order of easiest to hardest for a Bard to manipulate:
