Home / Biography / Camphor


Maximum Avery Lichtenstein — a fresh York-based maker, composer, songwriter, and person in the indie rock and roll clothing Timesbold — may be the traveling push behind Camphor’s atmospheric chamber pop. After composing music for a number of independent movies (including Jesus’ Child, Tarnation, as well as the Ruler), Lichtenstein became thinking about creating songs which were unrelated to movie theater. Launching a fresh task in 2006, he drew from a combined mix of organic (horns, harp, woodwinds) and produced instruments (Mellotron, consumer electronics) to style the songs that could later on comprise Camphor’s debut. Users of Mercury Rev, Beirut, Shiny Eye, and Timesbold all pitched in, as well as the collaborative LP Attracted to Dust presented Camphor’s split sound in early 2008.
