Carbon Based Lifeforms / Days of Utopia

Swedish duo Carbon Based Lifeforms, famous on the psytrance scene, is coming to perform in Liman Park, on 3 September at 7 p.m., as part of the opening of the Kaleidoscope of Culture programme arch.

Carbon Based Lifeforms (CBL) is made up of Johannes Hedberg and Daniel Vadestrid, both born in 1976 and based in southwest Sweden. They met when they were both 15, and are still happily working together, more than 25 years later. CBL was formed in 1996, blooming from other projects, but it soon became their focal point, which culminated in the first edition on in 1998.

In 2002, the duo signed a contract with the famous Ultimae label from Lyon and since then released six official full-length albums: Hydroponic Garden in 2003, World of Sleepers in 2006, Interloper in 2009, Twentythree in 2012.

In 2014 they left Ultimae and went independent, realising Derelicts in 2018, and Stochastic in 2021.

Johannes and Daniel set a goal for themselves to bring earth and space together in their music. Using 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 impacts that faulty technology can have on the environment. Johannes often creates by building blocks of sounds and harmonies – he could happily tweak sounds forever, while Daniel develops rhythms and shapes ideas into tracks.

CBL can often be found among headliners of the biggest psytrance festivals around the world. In 2009, they performed at the Cosmonova Planetarium within the Swedish Museum of Natural History, with their background consisting of paintings inspired by nature from all parts of the world. After that, they performed with the International Space Station, which led to an impromptu tour of the Solar System.
