You can not get away from them. Even though we may think something is as clear as it could be, there are always those who will offer a conspiracy theory as to why you only think you know what you think you know. Someone will always be there to offer some new bit of information about the grassy knoll, faked moon landings, Area 51 or the demise of some famous Hollywood star that somehow “knew too much”.

Conspiracy Theory is inspired by these musings, jostling the listener with the sounds of mass hysteria, intrigue and revelation.

Mvt. 1: "Paranoia" is as subtle as a stiletto stabbing through the air, inducing a sense of panic and fear in those who get their news from hidden messages in newspaper crossword puzzles. Yes, it is unsettling, which serves to stir the pot and bring others into the belief that doom is just around the corner if they are caught knowing what they know.

Mvt. 2: "Investigation" musically portrays the collection of data and facts in the attempt to confirm or deny the theory. The music implies people in white lab coats looking through microscopes, inspectors with magnifying glasses studying a scene or reporters trying to get answers from officials. But will they get an answer? Perhaps. But is the answer accurate? Doubtful.

Mvt. 3: "Implication and Revelation" reveals the truth as the "suspects" are put to the test. Newspaper headlines read "cleared" or "convicted" revealing the fate of the charged parties. The music offers a resolution that confirms the quest is over, that we can go about our lives...just as long as we don't ask too many questions.
