Ambience

The acoustic characteristics of a space with regard to reverberation. A room with a lot of reverb is said to be "live"; one without much reverb is said to be "dead".

Large rooms such as a concert hall can be flattering to musical performances. However, other large rooms such as a gymnasium can be hostile.
