INFO: Growing up in a musical family (brother Adam is a jazz pianist and sister Sara is a classical cellist) and studying the tenor saxophone through high school, Birnbaum initially pursued a career in avant-garde improvised music, performing in NYC with such luminaries as Andrew D'Angelo and Jim Black, and running the short-lived Boston Jazz Composers Collective. Eventually feeling frustrated by the lack of a non-musician audience, he decided to try to bring free jazz into the indie rock world.
