Born in 1991 in Bern, Switzerland, Clemens started playing the drums at the early age of 6. After studying with Gerry Hemingway, Norbert Pfammatter and Pierre Favre at the HSLU Jazz Departement, he quickly established himself as one of switzerlands most in-demand young drummers for modern creative music, always complementing but not overshadowing the music with his unique voice on the drums. His critically acclaimed quintet Murmullo with Clemens being the drummer and composer, featuring Jonathan Maag on tenor, Florian Weiss on trombone, Franz Hellmuller on guitar and Rafael Jerjen on bass, was nominated for the ZKB-Jazzpreis, switzerlands most prestigious jazz award, in 2019.
A commission of the Jazzwerkstatt Bern led to the foundation
of the international quintet Ydivide, featuring Elliot
Galvin, Dee Byrne, Chris Guilfoyle and Lukas Traxel.
