Similar to a room's acoustic although generally the term only refers to small spaces.

Ambience is the acoustic sound generated by a room. With the judicious use of microphone techniques, the ambience of a room in which an instrument is being recorded can be picked up and added to the direct sound of the instrument. This gives a greater sense of space within the recorded sound and can lead to a very natural-sounding stereo image.
