Music is widely regarded as the most ubiquitous of all artistic mediums. Self-expansion, oneness, and reality are all connoted by music. Only a true musician with a deep love and passion for music can justify its beauty. Masood Alam, a true icon and a passionate musician from Karachi’s suburbs, found his destiny through music. There is no shortage of talent in Pakistan, but how many people have the courage to see it through to the conclusion and bring about a paradigm shift? Masood Alam is a member of the composer elite. He never wrote music until he had something to say, and he never said the same thing twice; he never remained too long. Each of his composed compositions is unique, creating its own realm. In music like the Second Symphony, he bares his soul to us, but it is honorable as well as passionate. His melodic creativity is breathtaking, his harmonic taste is subtle but instantly recognizable, and his art is rich but never cloying. He has the ability to make his music sound as though he is speaking directly to the listener.
Masood Alam is the only artist who has worked for free in the Pakistani music industry for the majority of his career. An amazing musician who gave up the comforts of life to pursue his passion for music. He got his big break when PTV asked him to write music for one of their shows, “123 Check,” for which he received a lot of praise. Masood Alam toiled day and night from studio to studio, composing 76 songs in a year that most Pakistani musicians could only dream of. Masood Alam has founded a music foundry that has aided other composers, musicians, and singers in establishing a music institution and molding their careers. Masood Alam’s foundry has generated a lot of harmonizing music for Pakistan’s most popular companies and musicians, and it’s still going strong.
