         Mahakit Mahaniranon is a Thai composer-performer who plays piano and modular synthesizer. He has a passion for music/art and his multifaceted practice combines performance, composition, improvisation, sound of traditional Thai music and electroacoustic elements into an eclectic but individual musical expression. Never stopping to innovate and expand the scope of his work has led to a search for a sound incorporating acoustic elements, synthesizer and digital processes.

       His extensive interest in music results in works that reject stylistic boundaries and seek their own identity mixing ambient, minimalism, noise, free improvisation, Thai traditional, contemporary classical music and experimental electronica.  The intensity of his work and his creative process has earned him many opportunities as a solo performer.

        Various ensembles have included his compositions in their repertoire and they are being performed continuously, e.g. Tacet(i) Ensemble at IntAct Festival, Thailand. Collaborating with artists in other fields such as Contemporary Dance, Visual Arts, Film, and Poetry, inspires him. Working with people with different ideas and backgrounds helps him to develop his own work.

         Mahakit Mahaniranon was part of the foley team for the animated film “Krut: The Himmaphan Warriors”, released in cinemas in Thailand in 2019 and currently available on Netflix in Thailand. He was also selected for the “Call for Artists 2022 and 2023”. Received funding for a performance and The Best Creative Idea Prize in 2023 for the performance by the Princess Galyani Vadhana Institute of Music, Thailand.

             In addition, he was selected as an Artist in Residence 2023 at Elektronmusikstudion EMS, Stockholm, Sweden, a studio for professional composers and sound artists in the field of electroacoustic music and sound art. In 2024, The University of the Art Singapore (UAS), LASALLE College of the Arts invited Mahakit as an Artist in Residence to continue the development of his work “Twilight Phenomena” as part of the Music Research in Singapore Symposium 2024” held at LASALLE College of the Arts, Singapore.

          Throughout the years of his artistic and musical creations, he has received many sponsorship opportunities from organizations such as Office of Contemporary Art and Culture, Ministry of Culture and international companies such as Arturia music company based in Grenoble, France.

            At the moment, he works as a freelance composer, musician and music teacher. He is also a member of the composer and performer group Tyoy New Music, dedicated to experimental contemporary Thai music.
