If you've ever seen a movie called Never Cry Wolf, then you'll know what to expect from this album. Recorded around the same time as Mark did the soundtrack, it shares a lot of the musical themes. Vapor Drawings has sort of an arctic wasteland atmosphere.

This is pretty much a creature of the studio creation with Isham playing almost all of the instruments backed up with a percussionist, Peter Van Hooke. Synthesizers dominate the music, but there is an ample dose of Mark's horns. What you get is sort of a fusion, progressive electronic, ambient mix. And yes most of this music would be suitable for a soundtrack.
