Carbon Based Lifeforms
Carbon Based Lifeforms (CBL) consists of Johannes Hedberg and Daniel Segerstad (formerly Ringström) - both of them born in 1976 and based in Gothenburg on the west coast of Sweden. They first met when they were 15 and are still, amazingly, working happily together 25 years later.
The music of Johannes and Daniel aims to combine earth and space. Using the fusion of nature and technology as their main inspiration, they seek to portray both the positive and negative effects that this union can lead to - including the detrimental impact that modern innovation can have on the environment. Through this conceptual synergy, their creations often seem to reflect the natural landscape of their home soil. Listen to “Photosynthesis” on the “World of Sleepers” album, and you’ll find yourself in genuine concern for the forests. Then check the source of the quote sampled in the track and you’ll find that this was probably their intention.
A much-loved live band, CBL rarely perform besides special events and bigger international festivals. The last time they appeared in Stockholm was the much spoken-about two nights of sold out performances at Cosmonova, the IMAX-theatre in Stockholm's Museum of Natural History. This time, they will bring along a special visual and lights show by Global Illuminations - exclusive for this event, so prepare for a feast that caters to the eyes as well as the ears and mind.
