After High School he studied at the Hochschule Luzern - Musik Jazz Departement. His teachers and mentors included Pierre Favre, Gerry Hemingway, Norbert Pfammatter, Lauren Newton, Christoph Baumann, Ed Partyka, Roberto Domeniconi, Hans Feigenwinter and others.

Clemens had the privilege to play with greats like Vijay Iyer, Pierre Favre, Flavio Ambrosetti, Samuel Blaser, Nat Su, Hans Feigenwinter, Nils Wogram, Alex Sipiagin, Heiri Känzig and many more. In 2014 he founded his quintet „Murmullo“ with John Voirol on tenor saxophone, Flo Weiss on trombone, Franz Hellmüller on guitar and Rafael Jerjen on Bass
