Status Update / New Music

Unfortunately, I find less and less time to update this page and add new content. I’m still doing graphics programming and switched from OpenGL to Vulkan but besides a lack of time I also haven’t found a good topic for a new demo. GPU ray tracing is exciting to have after all the years so this would be an option.

Another passion of mine is making music, which is a great balance to programming, although music can also get very mathematically. I recently released 11 new songs I made over the last two years. I’m still learning a lot in all aspects of music production and I hope I’m getting better. As usual, most songs are some kind of Heavy Metal, but for friends of undistorted sounds there are also four songs of other genres. For the first track I hired a singer and a drummer on Fiverr to see how that would work out and they really helped to make a musically quite simple song much better. Everything else from recording bass and guitar to mastering was done by me. I hope you can enjoy my music and if you have any feedback let me know:

BonzaiSoftware 2013

It has been almost three years since my last post. There are two reasons: First, I’m busy at my current job as a software developer with ask GmbH, where we offer innovative visualisation solutions, automated document generation, and broadcast computer graphics. Second, there weren’t many exciting new algorithms or techniques in the last years. Combined with my lack of time and a few other reasons which I may explain in their own posts, I wasn’t able to do anything new worth posting.

So what’s new for 2013? As you can see, I migrated the old page to WordPress, giving the site a modern layout and making it easier for me to post new stuff. Since making new computer graphics demos with state of the art graphics becomes more and more time consuming, I’ll post less of them and try to focus on new articles and tutorials in the future.
