Here is my best explanation:

'the audience' is the definition.
The answer and definition can be both related to communication as well as being singular nouns.
Maybe you can see a link between them that I don't see?

'not a whisper' is the wordplay.
I cannot really see how this works, but
'a' is found in the answer.
The remaining letters 'side' is a valid word which might be clued in a way I don't see.
This explanation may well be incorrect...

'to' acts as a link.
