⅓ Octave Band

Bill Wood and Jules Desmond are 1/3 Octave Band. One album’s credits say they play guitars, effects, field recordings and oscillators. They’re on the noisy end of the spectrum, but if your interest in ambient comes from post-rock or drone then here you go!

Here’s their album, Ultramarine, for classic New Zealand experimental label PseudoArcana.
