302 Acid combines elements of computer technology with live instrumentation. Improvisation plays an integral role in the way they approach both composition and live performance. The result is a heavily-layered sound that draws influence from dub, ambient and IDM. On their EP "Ailanthus Altissima", arrangements are stripped down to raw drum and bass grooves, accompanied and punctuated by digital found-sound bursts and ambient layers, and often mutated through real-time processing until the line between these core elements is unrecognizable. Visual information is layered into a collage which breathes and pulsates, entwined around the musical arrangements.
