Merriam-Webster defines "Ambience" as:
: a feeling or mood associated with a particular place, person,
or thing : atmosphere
In the production side of the film/TV industry, the location mixer will
often ask for "Quiet on the Set" so the room tone (ambience or part of
atmospheres collection) can be recorded to be later used in post
production to match ADR with the original production dialogue.
