Voces Fantasmas is a multi-disciplinary program honoring immigrants who are in ICE detention. The program is based on experiences of Houston-based Mexican composer, J.E. Hernández, and his own 60 day ICE imprisonment. The work had its world premiere at the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston, shortly after a feature by the JFK Kennedy Center for the Arts.
The work features original choreography, original cinema (direction and writing), and an original score. Both an album and a full length film version of the program is also available.
Watch an excerpt from the World Premiere that occurred on September 30th, 2021 at the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston.
The recording was done on site, and then mixed and engineered by Michael T. Silva.
