Uno was born and raised in Västerbotten, in the rural parts of northern Sweden. When he was a small child, his parents took note of his talent for music and made him take organ classes in the nearest town. As a teenager, having moved to a larger town, he played in bands and came to realize that he wanted to pursue music as his profession. He studied music in upper secondary school and continued with a number of preparatory courses before being accepted into Royal College of Music in Stockholm in the fall of 2002.
During his collage years, he came into contact with Johan Söderqvist, one of the most prominent composers of film music in the Nordics. After graduating, Uno started working as Söderqvist’s assistant on films like “Let the Right One In”, “Kon-Tiki” and “Limbo”. Their cooperation matured into a partnership that has resulted in acclaimed productions like the TV series “Bron” and “Departement Q” I & II.
Uno got his own international breakthrough with his music for the Danish documentary “Armadillo” in 2010. Since then he has been frequently engaged to compose music for TV and cinema all around the world. One of the most recent projects is the heralded Norwegian documentary film “Magnus”, portraying the chess world champion.
