What I find personally inspiring regarding Joseph Clement is that he
came from a poor background and was not educated, yet a brilliant
draughtsman in designing amazing tools, for people like Babbage and the
difference engine. Although, he did create his own musican organ as well
and enjoyed playing his analogue sounds regularly :-)
had such a big influence that was creative and imagiinative
