About The First Conception

What is The First Conception?

The First Conception is (in this case) the name of a music project co-founded by Thomas Conway (acoustic guitar) and Rogerio Ferreira (drums, percussion and glockenspiel) who play free style instrumental music mostly but also Early Music, European Folk, Easy Listening, and World Music, as well as making jazz, blues and traditional European folk arrangements. On occasion, TFC play blues and jazz, and compose music for film and documentaries.

Jaki Alden (flute, mandolin, clarinet, violin, and woodwind) has recorded two albums with the project and joins in from time to time for gigs. Other musicians are invited when necessary.

The project’s instrumental soundscapes create a symbiotic relationship of dreamy labyrinthine sounds and a sparse rendering of musical arrangements, which aim to take their listeners on imaginary musical trips.

The First Conception came to life in March 2008 in the form of an acoustic set as a duo live act at The Steam Packet, Norwich, after a few months spent on rehearsals.

TFC have so far recorded five albums: We Are Born (April 2008), Inscape (July 2008), Riddle of Existence (July 2009), Random Thoughts (August 2009) and The Jazz Matter (September 2009).

Zacron ((expired link)) was an artist best known for designing the iconic Led Zeppelin III album cover for his friend Jimmy Page in 1973. This is part of a vast and varied body of work by Zacron spanning five decades. He did the same thing for his friend Rogerio Ferreira regarding Inscape’s CD cover.

The First Conception has no Merchandise yet.
