tourist kid


Born in Silicon Valley & residing in Melbourne (via Perth), Australia, experimental electronic musician Tourist Kid (Rory Glacken) is infatuated with the fake.. Self described as “computer shoegaze”
Glacken approaches the concept of ambient & drone music recklessly; processing adopted &
synthesized sound sources to create a rich yet abstract latticework.

Inspired by Early AM post clubbing commutes & informed by coming to terms with tinnitus, A
Circulation, released on cassette by This Thing in 2016 & his 2017 release on Good
Company Records filters motifs of dance music through the stencils of wooly ambient music &
minimalistic compositions.

His 2018 release on Jonny Nash's Melody is Truth label 'Crude Tracer' gained positive acclaim with Commend NYC saying "There is a faintly alarming quality to these swelling, formless reflections that require the listener to remain alert to their many moving parts. It’s sorrowful and exciting."
