For a while now Cambridge, ON’s Marc Bourgon has been known as the incredibly nice (how stereotypically Canadian, eh?), really tall and super talented bassist of Greber and Fuck the Facts. But for the past few years, he’s also been working on an experimental solo project, dubbed Cancelled. Following 2013’s Threshold Adjustment, Bourgon now presents his new offering, titled Tenebrific, which will be released independently on March 3rd. The EP, which was mixed by none other than Kurt Ballou and mastered by Ryan Butler, features three tracks encompassing elements of industrial, doom and drone into an unconventional, diverse sound that is subtle and airy, yet also harsh and aggressive.
Bourgon recently took the time for an interview with Svbterranean to discuss what it’s like doing a solo project, how it all started and why he chose the name Cancelled. He also talks about the writing and recording process for Tenebrific and the meaning behind the title, as well as Cancelled’s ambiguous sound, how the project differs from his other bands and much more.
