Takahiro Kuroda (b. 1989) is a Japanese composer based in Tokyo. He studied composition with Toma Imoto, Isao Matsushita, Norio Fukushi, Jo Kondo, Jummei Suzuki and Klaus Lang.

In recent years, his works have ranged from purely musical to socially and politically oriented, but his primary concern is that the audience and appreciator is confronted with some question through his work. On the one hand, he composes and created works that approaches the state and the transformation of time and space in compositions upon the consideration concerning the relationship between sound and silence, and on the other hand, he composes and creates works that raise and approach issues that emerge upon the observations of various histories from the past to the present, as well as (mainly Japanese) today's aspect of society and current worldwide situation. These are his personal interests, but he hopes that the works that are created from such interests will be a mirror of the audience and appreciator's inner self.

In 2018 he was commissioned by Music From Japan to compose a piece and invited to Music From Japan Festival 2019 in New York as one of the Japanese composers influenced by John Cage.
