L. Michael Roberts was
born of Canadian parents in the Republic of South Africa. He moved
back to Canada in his late teens to correct the situation.
In school Michael
studied the regular subjects along with art, art history,
classical and vocal music. As an art student, he was
interested in the 'Op-Art' movement and experimented with optical
and kinetic art, building several motorised sculptures. He
also sang in several Gilbert and Sullivan operettas but found he
was more interested in the lighting, sound and production aspects
of the shows. Thus began a life-long interest in the
technical aspects of show production.
Michael saw his first laser show at the Toronto planetarium in
1975 where he was inspired by a performance of Laserium the
pioneering laser light show. The beauty of the images and
the vibrant colours drew him back again and again until he fell in
love with the concept of drawing and painting with
light. He became a laserist when he purchased his
first laser and designed and built an X-Y projection system in
early 1976. He was the first in Canada to offer "have laser
show - will travel" services.
He began by performing simple laser beam effects with rock bands,
at corporate shows and special events. Over the years he has
upgraded his systems with the addition of graphics and animations,
beam tables, 3D graphics and other advanced technologies. He
has performed laser shows for major corporations, designed
choreographed and performed laser and fireworks spectaculars,
created movie special FX and toured internationally with renown
In April 1978 he originated the Laser Dance Party which combines
the traditional elements of a DJ, sound system, and dance lighting
with a live high-tech laser show. He has toured this, his
favorite show, internationally performing at thousands of parties
and raves in Canada, South America, Africa and Europe!
Michael is an award winning laser artist and animator. He
loves to create dancing character animations. He published the
world's first Laser Clip-art catalogue and his award-winning
animations can be seen in a variety of shows and locations around
L. Michael Roberts is the author of "Laser F/X: The Light
Show Handbook", a 400+ page technical manual on laser
displays considers by many to be "the bible of the
industry". He has had technical
articles and papers published in The Laserist, Photonics Spectra,
Laser Talk, Laser Effects, Laser Focus, and other publications.
L. Michael Roberts is an avid fan of Electronika, especially
trance and techno. He thoroughly enjoys choreographing laser
with lighting effects so as to enhance the visuals at
parties. His performances at raves and parties have found
him working alongside artists and DJs as Paul Oaknfold, Max
Graham, Dr. Trance, Union Jack, Danny Tenaglia, Star Sound
Orchestra and many more.
In the last few years, Michael
has turned his attention to the design of systems and products for
use in laser displays. He acts as a consultant and product
designer to various manufacturers in North America, Europe and
Asia, as well as providing marketing services for systems and
products. Some of the equipment and systems in use throughout
the world for professional laser shows are based on his designs
