Wires, lights, laptops and controllers filled the MAD school this past weekend as Karachi’s home brewed experimental acts Mole and Basheer & the Pied Pipers took stage. The audience was small but a dedicated bunch of ears were eagerly perched on their behinds as the two bands exhaled a tornado of sounds on to the eager crowd. Basheer’s off-time beat driven ambient soundscapes were welcomed by the room and its captivated audience. Soon followed Mole, with a reduced and more compact line up as the other band members were out of town, but they still managed to deliver a wall of drowned out melodies, screams, chants and whispers while a lush synth cushionined the echoes along the way.
