And the Music …”Isfahan,” all glory goes to E.S. Posthumus, formerly a band of two brothers, Helmut and Franz Vonlichten, born and raised in Los Angeles, California, USA. Helmut and Franz were an independent music group that produced cinematic style music and studied piano with their mother.

The E.S. is an acronym for “Experimental Sounds” while Posthumus is a Latin word that is meant to represent “all things past.”

After graduating from high school, Franz worked in recording studios while Helmut attended and graduated from UCLA, with a degree in archaeology. On July 22, 2010, it was officially announced that Franz had died about two months before. After giving notice of his brother’s death in November 2011, it was officially announced that Helmut Vonlichten had formed a new band called “Les Friction” and released a preview of his new work with a track called “Torture.”

Their “Christmas Eve” single was released in November 2010, as a Christmas tribute to Franz, the last song produced by E.S. Posthumus, and the brothers’ last recording session before Franz’s death. The cause of death is unknown to me. If you’re reading this and know, please let me know. Thank you.

The first clip of this video belonged to MrJohnnyNK, he closed his youtube channel around 2010 – early 2011. I used parts of the same clips for another video called “The World,” which was uploaded on December 2010.

Johnny shared well over 2,000 nature, landscape and ocean documentaries from around the world with the youtube community and every video was combined with the most glorious music, many I had never heard. What a treasure Johnny was. I hope he always fares well.
