Inish Sofia Hedén Næss, known mononymously as Inish, is an artist and record label spirit at Spirals based in Bergen. 

For The Only Lasting Truth is Change, Inish will play techno, trance, intimate field recordings and text readings by protectors of LGBTQIA+ people. Inish will perform in honour of trans lives, empowering the community on the 20th November which marks the Transgender Day of Remembrance. 


With roots in the Berlin and Bergen techno scene, and the practice of radical empathy and dance-floor ritualism, Inish embodies sound art and electronic music as a true alchemist. Through sets and live performances they are known to guide the listener through spiritual states of being, radiating the techno-sphere and “gracing their movements with the enchanting elements of field recordings, intimate samples, trance, house and acid.” By being Inish, they continue to break moulds within the intersecting fields of art and music, diving deep into the realms where ecology meets music and sound merges with spirituality. In the spirit of community, they create concepts based on reciprocity and care which are focused on empowering the LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC communities, with queer ecology and empathy being central in their practice. Their current project, ‘A Guide to Empathetic Spaces’, explores the deconstruction of colonial systems and lays the grounds for creating new narratives of care and belonging.
