Maarten Smit is a Dutch pianist and composer.

From ages 9 to 17, Smit had piano lessons at local music school. He loves improvizing, preserves emerging compositions using music notation software, uploads them under a Creative Commons license since spring 2007, and accompanies theater.

While Smit is not officially connected to games, professional developer Karl Hörnell discovered his 4 Honky Tonk Types No. 3 from 2005 and transcribed three sections as chiptunes for his retro game Iceblox Plus.

Smit lives in Workum, Súdwest-Fryslân, Friesland, Netherlands with his wife, two children and a dog. He used to work as a biologist, but has worked in the local hospital's IT ever after.
