searching by respectfulchild
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 敬兒 again. 在找 ::searching:: is 敬兒’s pursuit to find what they’ve lost and what they don’t yet know.
