"This piece alone has been imitated numerous times by various composers, a testament to its influence in the scoring of suspense music."
Other than Nixon and Jurassic Park, I'm not sure if I've heard music similar to Williams' Conspirators. Does Williams ever expand on these ideas? I like the sneakiness of it all.

There is some similar suspence music in Ottman's Usual Suspects.
Ars superior est vita hominum.
"We pop out and come into the world and music is there. We didn't invent it - it's all organised in the atmosphere by divinity or whatever. It's a miracle." - John Williams-
I think music is a stream of some kind. It could be blood. It could be water. It could be ether. Whatever it is it seems to be a living, organic force that’s in motion, that serves humanity and is part of humanity and part of what describes us as humans. We sing, play, dance, all the things that we do. And there is a vibrant and great literature we have been given. ... As musicians, we join the stream. We swim in the stream with all the other millions of music makers. It’s a life force, a strong one, surrounding us and we are part of it. -John Williams-

The Firm was released on June 30, 1993 and JFk was released on December 20, 1991, so it is possible that this cue was influenced by Williams. Of course, in 1993, Williams used a similar style for the cue in JP - "Dennis Steals The Embryo."
