Event Details

vurtnight with Lucy (Stroboscopic Artefacts / Berlin)

SUNA, Xanexx, Koshin, VJ Nahsol

Lucy (née Luca Mortellaro) is one of the pre-eminent sonic adventurers of his time. Not bound to conventional pre-conceptions of what an electronic musician, producer, or DJ must be, Lucy has evolved his distinct sound signature by reconciling the deeply personal with the esoteric, and by harmonizing the spheres of technology and biology. In doing so, he has become rare as an artist, in his ability to please an audience while also introducing them to elements they were not yet familiar with and thereby pushing them out of their comfort zone.

After founding the Stroboscopic Artefacts record label back in 2009, he has also provided a consistently intriguing forum for other artists who share this unique aesthetic sensibility and high level of quality control (some of the notable contributors to the label include Luke Slater, Speedy J, James Ruskin, Donato Dozzy, Ben Klock, Perc, Kangding Ray and Rrose). The label’s focus on thematic series of releases has helped define it as a label whose output becomes more diverse and engaging especially when it challenges itself to work within certain self-imposed boundaries.

As a solo artist, Lucy’s discography is distinguished by his trilogy of highly immersive LPs (Wordplay for Working Bees, Churches, Schools and Guns, and the newly released Self Mythology). Each of these releases shines an intense beam of coherent light upon Lucy’s technical skill and exploratory drive. No less important, though, are Lucy’s numerous EP-length releases, remixes, and collaborations. For example, his production duo Zeitgeber (with Speedy J) has already become a powerful hypnotic entity in and of itself, while other partnerships with Ben Klock or Silent Servant have proven that he is capable of making collaborative records that are more than the sum of their parts. He has also been commissioned to provide exclusive tracks for institutions such as Bleep and The Wire magazine, while being invited for numerous appearances at Boiler Room, BBC Radio One and Resonance FM, and podcast hubs such as Resident Advisor and Rinse FM.

As a stage performer, Lucy has traversed much of the planet Earth and earned many of the prestigious gigs for exceptional talents: he has held innumerable DJ gigs at Berghain, as well as Fabric, Warehouse Project, Tokyo’s Unit, Goa in Rome, and Ibiza’s DC-10. His appearances on the festival scene have included Sonar, Mutek, Dekmantel, Movement Detroit and Awakenings. However, one of his true strengths lies in his ability to take a DJ’s knowledge of collective mood manipulation and combine it with the more anarchic or questing spirit of non-techno forms of psychedelic music and ritual practices. His acclaimed monthly Sound Bath Meditation Sessions in Berlin, involving the use of traditional instruments like gongs and bells, are a prime example of this capability and passion. His performance at the Rossini Opera Festival in 2012 (an honour only granted to one globally respected artist per year) also proved that, whatever the nature of the tool in his hands, Lucy is always able to deliver a bold message. Finally, the concert tour accompanying his Self Mythology LP, featuring the added talents of Jon Jacobs and Ignazio Mortellaro, is yet another proof of Lucy’s quest to challenge audiences harmonically both outside and inside explored territories.

Whether he is acting in the role of producer, DJ, performer, or Stroboscopic Artefacts’ curator, Lucy’s clear passion for creative evolution and mutation is something that continues to attract new listeners, and keeps giving his current supporters new reasons to continue tuning in.

Phoenix Park Ski resort

3 Ski Resorts near Seoul
Phoenix Park is perhaps one of the more well-known resorts in Korea as it was the host hill for the Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympics and skiing and snowboarding. Located in Pyeongchang, Gwangwon province, Phoenix boasts with the title of best freestyle hill in Korea.

Even though Korean mountains might be smaller than their European and American counterparts, they are absolutely no less fun. The quality of the snow at Phoneix is some of the best in Korea due to higher snowfall records, so riders can rest assured that it will be quality riding on soft cushy snow, throughout the entire winter season. The Phoenix team did an excellent job keeping the snow in pristine riding condition during the Olympics. Actually 12 out of the 22 slopes are of international standard.

The Park has both a gondola 8 chairlifts that all depart from the base area. Five chairs go up all or part way to the peak which is names Mount Blanc, the available gondola also goes up all the way to the peak. The remaining thee chairs go up to the smaller peak, Bulaemaru, on the side of the mountain.

The new Seoul – Gangneung route can get you there in 90 minutes on the high speed train and then a short 25 minute bus ride from the station to the resort. A train ticket will cost you about 20,000 won or so. Alternatively one can take a bus from Samseong or Jamsil straight to the resort and it takes about 2 hours.
 

Vivaldi Park - DAEMYUNG RESORT

3 Ski Resorts near Seoul
Vivaldi’s state of the art facilities and ease of access makes it understandable why it is the most visited resort in Korea, 8 years in a row! Daemyung Resort Vivaldi Park is located in neighboring Gangwon-do province, right across the border line so do not fret, still only a 60 minute trip. Vivaldi can host up to 20,000 visitors so you know they run a smooth operation.
Vivaldi boasts one of the trendiest resorts in Korea and that makes it quite the hotspot amongst the younger crowds, that and its close proximity to Seoul. Vivaldi is equipped with the biggest resort in the country making it an easy choice destination for many tourists.
As mentioned earlier, Vivaldi is high-tech, it has the first express 8-seater chair lift in Asia and what makes it even better is that is open until 5am. So for those hip night owls who love to shred the night time gnar, you know where to go.
Vivaldi offers 12 slopes with 10 lifts at varying times and prices. So it’s pretty simple to select something that suits your needs. Free shuttle buses that are specifically arranged for tourists go straight to the resort. These buses depart from various locations in Seoul and they also return to the same places they departed from.
Vivaldi offers all varieties of slopes, from beginner to advanced, making it a good destination for groups with mixed levels.
Due to the high volume capacity this place can get packed so it’s better to go on the weekdays or at night. Otherwise be prepared to wait in 30min -1hour lines.
 

Jisan Ski resort

3 Ski Resorts near Seoul
Situated in Icheon, Jisan resort is definitely a top choice amongst the local ski resorts due to its close proximity to Seoul. Just an hour and a half away, Jisan resort is perfect for day trips. So if you’re pressed for time, Jisan will definitely satisfy your snow craving. For those that have the luxury of time the resort offers a multitude of beautiful condos.
Jisan might not be renowned for its natural snow due to its warmer geographical location, but one would hardly notice as the artificial snow and snow grooming at the resort is top notch. Jisan offers 7-8 beginner to intermediate slopes, making it the perfect destination for a family outing regardless of ski proficiency. The ski resort usually gets packed on the weekend so it might be better to go during the weekdays. Advanced riders might consider one of our other resorts as they might find these slopes a bit too easy.
For those who are not so interested in skiing/snowboarding you can always try the snow-sledding which is heaps of fun. If you get tired or hungry, a cafeteria is located at the base of the slopes. Sit outside and enjoy some snacks while taking in the breathtaking scenery.
Free shuttle buses operate from various destinations in order to provide convenient access so don’t worry about renting a car.  How to get there:
Express Bus at Seoul Nambu Express Bus Terminal OR Dongseoul Express Bus Terminal → Icheon IntercityBus Terminal → Local bus No. 12 → Jisan Mart Entrance → Jisan Ski Resort
