Being in love with laser his whole life, Jason Salt has been providing immersive abstract laser art to the entertainment scene since 2007. His first show was at the IEEE annual banquet and featured a self-built single color laser projector and used function generators out of the college lab to perform live abstracts to music. Intrigued with how laser projectors work, Jason started building his own systems in his garage. In 2013 Jason build his first full color RGB system. This was also the first system that interfaced with control software providing recording capabilities. Using Mathematics and Science, Jason was able to transform a laser into an artistic display of abstract colors and patterns and sync it to music. Learning about various hardware and software platforms Jason decided to build a custom live performance console. The console features old school analog controls, as well as new school digital controls. What really sets his console apart are the two laser projector preview windows. With the power of the live console and the recognition of the community Jason formed Salty Robot Productions in 2018. Salty Robot Productions has been working out of the Charlotte NC area and has been able to provide laser FX for the Carolina Panthers and All Elite Wrestling. Live laser shows have been included with Western Piedmont Symphony in Newton NC, Yuri’s Night at Kennedy Space Center, and at Bach Akademie Charlotte. Salty Robot Productions partnered with local cellist Kelvin Chang to form Chromatic Strings in 2022, blending classical cello music with abstract laser entertainment.
