Ian Stewart is a visual artist and musician based in Wichita.
“My name is Ian Stewart and I make music under the name Cleme.
It’s all collage based; it’s taking multiple things and turning them into one hopefully good piece.
Essentially there is no difference in my production method in doing a design for someone and this. It’s all layering and sometimes I’ll find that I’ve layered far too much and I’ll have to scrap things.
It’s static in some ways but then with effects and modulation of things—you’re allowed to be an improviser. I kind of put it on par with being a keyboard player and you can modulate waves and whatnot. You can slow down the waves and speed them up but I don’t like it to sound super electronic-y."
