A Digital Guise show is a highly entertaining experience that combines music, video and audience participation. Performing familiar music from movies, TV and video games for students K-12, Digital Guise demonstrates how closely music and film work together. Audience participation consists of using sounds provided by the students to make music on the spot and usually the result can be amusing and very entertaining.

Star Worlds highlights inspiring music that was created for sci-fi movies and TV shows dating back to the 60s. You'll hear themes from Star Trek, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Star Wars and Dr Who. Classical compositions, such as Holst's The Planets, that were fundamental in inspiring a whole generation of film composers are also featured. Along with the new show, favourite songs from previous tours (Pirates of the Carribbean, Mario Brothers, Mission Impossible) round out the program. Two types of presentations are offered: a traditional performance for the whole school, or a full-day workshop inviting individual classes for a "behind the scenes" look at the creation of the sounds and a hands-on opportunity to play the unique instruments used in the show, then finishing the day off with a full show for the whole school in the afternoon.

This participatory show introduces students to the way music is being created today for movies, soundtracks and pop culture. Using excerpts from The Pirates of the Caribbean, The Simpsons and The Hobbit, and music from Mario and Zelda games, the performance demonstrates behind-the-scenes artistic integration of music and action in the making of films and video. For audience participation, Digital Guise creates a humorous song using students' voices. Images are projected onto a large screen behind the group for added impact.
