    Cartographer, the second album from E.S. Posthumus, was supposed to release sometime in 2006 but was later released in early 2007. The delay from the original release date can only so far be attributed to the Vonlichten brothers' ill-concern with deadlines, although it is rumored the delay in release was due to the addition of Sans to the group of musicians, an addition much heralded by Helmut Vonlichten Upon the album's release on the CDBaby website, it came accompanied with the following album description: "In 1929, the ancient map "Piri Reis" was discovered in Istanbul. The map is extraordinary because it depicts bays and islands on the Antarctic coast which have been concealed under ice for at least 6,000 years. What civilization was capable of such exploration that long ago? On "Cartographer", we imagine that these explorers were from the tiny island of Numa in the Southern Indian Ocean. As advanced seafarers, they navigated every corner of the Earth. We have created a language unique to them and tell stories through song that describe their creation, discoveries and ultimate demise. This is a 2 CD collection with Vocal and Remix versions of every song. The Remix CD also contains 2 bonus tracks."
