He took photographer Scott Pilgrim out in his neighbourhood here in Montreal where he grew up. M: What was it like getting approached to work with artists like Woodkid and Action Bronson?   B: Both were really cool experiences that really opened my eyes to how collaborations could expand my creative process, and force me into working from a different state of mind, and trying different approaches to writing and performing.   M: We know that you play a few instruments, which is...
