Carbon Based Lifeforms (also known as CBL) is an electronic music duo made up of Johannes Hedberg and Daniel Segerstad (born Ringström), both born in 1976 and based in Göteborg, Sweden. They met at the age of 15 and are still working together, almost 20 years later. CBL itself was formed in 1996, as an offshoot from other projects, but soon became their focal point, culminating in their first release on mp3.com in 1998.
Johannes often creates the building blocks of sounds and harmonies and could tweak sounds forever, whereas Daniel develops the rhythms and sculpts the ideas into tracks. It remains unclear which of them derives the greatest pleasure from manipulating the distinctive, squelching sounds of the Roland TB-303; certainly it is much more fun than any man is entitled to have whilst twiddling electronic knobs...
Through this synergy of ideas, their aim is to combine earth and space in their music. Daniel and Johannes use the combination of nature and technology as the main inspiration for their work. They like to represent both the positive and negative effects that this collaboration can lead to, including the negative impact that incorrect technology can have on the environment. http://www.carbonbasedlifeforms.net/ http://www.facebook.com/carbonbasedlifeforms http://www.last.fm/music/Carbon+Based+Lifeforms
