Conspiracy Deliracy, the brainchild of bassist and composer Andrew Binder, features original compositions crossed between modern jazz, pop music icons, their music, and conspiracy theories. Recipient of a 2023 Urbana Arts Grant, the music is tongue-in-cheek commentary on today’s delusional era of misinformation, sensitively interpreted by some of the Midwest’s top jazz musicians.
Bigfoot, Area 51, and the faked moon landing... birds are actually government surveillance drones... Stevie Wonder isn't actually blind... Avril Lavigne is dead and replaced by a doppelganger... Katy Perry is a shape-shifting reptilian... and Beyoncé is a part of the Illuminati?
You won't believe it until you hear it for yourself.
