Here is my best explanation:

'confusion' is the definition.
(thesaurus)

'by moslem art creation' is the wordplay.
'by' says to put letters next to each other.
'creation' indicates anagramming the letters.
'moslem' put after 'art' is 'artmoslem'.
'artmoslem' is an anagram of 'MAELSTROM'.

'produced' acts as a link.
