respectfulchild 敬兒 is a solo instrumental project for violin based out of Saskatoon, SK on
Treaty 6 Territory. They build experimental ambient soundscapes through slow progressions of
meticulous improvisation, bringing quiet to even the noisiest of rooms. Their debut album 在找::
searching:: was released last summer on Coax Records and they have toured across Canada
and Europe with artists such as Rae Spoon, A Tribe Called Red, and Jeremy Dutcher.

The name respectfulchild is the literal translation of Gan’s Mandarin name 敬兒[jìng er]. This
name was given to Gan by their grandmother when they were born, a name and a culture
they’ve become estranged from having lived their whole life in the predominantly white world of
the Canadian Prairies. The music of respectfulchild is Gan’s quiet way of seeking meaning in 敬
å…’ again.
