Carbon Based Lifeforms is a duo created by Johannes Hedberg and Daniel Segerstad. Both were born in 1976 in Gothenburg, south-west Sweden. They met for the first time, when they were both 15 years old, and then they started a collaboration that has been going on for more than 25 years. The CBL was established in 1996 as a branch of other projects, but it quickly became their leading activity. In 1996 a demo The Path was released, which already then allowed listeners to get to know the unique sounds of their music.
