The images shown above represent the Glasgow International 2024 project that Kyalo Searle-Mbullu is participating in, as well as the artist’s individual practice.

Kyalo Searle-Mbullu (Kenyan/Swiss/british) is a musician and audio-visual artist. His solo practice spans live performance and installation, exploring the liminal spaces between sound and vision through the multi-sensorial merging of light, projections, and the physicality of sound. Central to his work is the perception of abstract ideas and identities through themes of ephemerality and acoustic ecology.
