Hedberg and Segerstad initially formed CBL as a side project to the band Notch in 1996. As Notch, they released The Path in 1998. As time went by, CBL became their main focus. The first releases by CBL were made on MP3.com in 1998.
Carbon Based Lifeforms signed on with Ultimae Records in 2002. They have released eight albums (The Path, Hydroponic Garden, World of Sleepers, Interloper, VLA, Twentythree, Refuge - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, ALT:01) and one EP (Irdial).
CBL has always been open for collaboration with other composers and musicians. For instance, they teamed up with Magnus Birgersson (Solar Fields) in 1999 to write the music for the Swedish dancer Olof Persson's performance "Fusion".
On 27 and 28 November 2009, CBL performed live at Cosmonova, the combination ImaxDome/digital planetarium, at the Swedish Museum of Natural History, Stockholm. Visuals for the concert were produced by Cosmonova's Astronomer/Program Producer, Tom Callen.
CBL has signed with Blood Music and as of early 2015 is releasing some of their past works on vinyl.
CBL is now releasing their music on the label Leftfield Records (http://www.lftfld.se/#/releases)
