  • 4 Editorial W elcom e W el co m eYou now hold in your hand a product which is filled joy, inspiration and most of all, change. As you routined students see, we have tried to move a bit away from the look of the previous years' magazines and begun a search for a soul.The road is cringly and long, and filled with small mistakes and victories all along the way. A month have passed since this term started and most of you are getting used to uni life, finding your special balance between work and play, finding the people you want to spend most of the time the coming years with, and generally get a rough taste of being a student. We want to hear your stories, we want to share them with the rest of aib so if you think you got it, pop in at the student union and tell them you want to contribute to Dingsdabumsda. We also have a midspread poster where the best work we get in will be shown for everyone to hang up on their walls! Nice opportunity to show of some arty skills i'd say! For this issue; thanks to Rafael Tondi Grazini(http://www.iloo.com. br/rafaeltondi/), Marie Johansen(http://www.betweenitall.com/) for contribution to the art section, Johannes Ritzel (http://www.jori-design.com/) for help with the designs on quite a few pages andJason Kerley (http://www.jasonkerley.co.uk/) for the front cover and artwork for the poster. And Matthew Broughton for LOADS of help with the magazine, extreme amounts of contribution of both text n images! Bernhard Hansen Gaustad Editor, Dingsdabumsda
  • I’m your Student Union President for this year. Welcome to the AIB or welcome back everyone who is returning for another year of fun and frolic’s! I’m enthusiastic about the coming year and all that we can do for you as the AIB’s student voice. Some of you may feel unaware of what it is that the Student Union is here for and what you should expect from us? Well, it is our duty to improve your student life as a whole, should you need it. There are many exciting events that we organise for you; we kicked off the year with Freshers week and the fresher’s fayre, which was a great success! Expect Halloween themed fun, a Christmas ball and a range of other festivities! Don’t forget if you have any ideas for events or fundraisers; make sure you pop into the SU for a chat to see how we could help you! The end of fresher’s week means the time to knuckle down and get on with some work (which is why we’re here after all) but that’s ok, as there will be events and frivolity here to keep you entertained and get you through it all Remember that the start of term also welcomes the opportunity to represent your class as student rep! Two reps are needed per class and it can change every year. You will have the chance to attend course board meetings and become a member of the student council, providing you with an insight into the some of the most crucial decisions that the AIB Student Union make. The SU wants you to get involved!!! My personal aims for this year are… To re-vamp Dingsda-bumsda magazine giving it our own identity and offering you, the students the chance to show off your creative skills and attributes! To create a TV channel to represent the AIB, on show in the Arts Bar displaying students work, providing the opportunity to explore different creative opportunities working alongside other courses. To re-introduce the community feel at the AIB, we are a community and should take every opportunity to have meet n’ greets with other courses regardless of your year. We should learn from each other and share what we know. I will also endeavor to do my utmost to provide the best year possible for all stu- dents at the AIB for 08/09, so if you have any questions or queries or just need to chat about something come and see me here at the SU. Communication is some- thing which I believe is essential if we want the Student Union to be a success this year, without it we can’t know if we are doing all we can for you guys, so please, if you do need anything just come and have chat with us or send us an email. Thank you, all the best for the coming year Sarah Howard SU President W elcom e W el co m e
  • 6 MA Graduantion Work Hello everyone. This year we intend to make some big changes in the various responsibili- ties we have on the Student Union. One aspect I particularly want to develop is our magazine Dingsda Bumsda. Since the format change 2 years ago the magazine has started to look good however due to lack of support and contributors it was not as strong as it could have been last year. This year we wish to pitch Dingsda as more of a professional magazine which features work contributed from the students here at the Arts Institute. The magazine will also feature music and exhibi- tion reviews, stories and much more. If you feel you can contribute to the development of the magazine, or even just a page it is important that we hear from you as most of Dingsda Bumsda is produced by AIB students. I also wish to further the development of clubs and sports at the institute. Recent meetings with the Bournemouth University SU have confirmed that our students are legible to join any of the clubs and societies available from their campus. This means that many of the more obscure hobbies or activi- ties we cannot facilitate for are now available. We also intend to continue development on our football, Basketball, Netball and rugby clubs we have within the institute. This year I wish to support anyone who wants to start up something new at the institute. If you think something is lacking, or needs improving then take it upon yourself to make a change. The Arts Institute Student Union is small and understaffed so relies on innovative students to support its cause to im- prove the AIB environment. We urge everyone who thinks they can support our cause in any shape or form to come and help, suggest new ideas or gain support for your own exploits. Have a great first term!

  • 8 Student Services Welcome to the Student Services Student Services are an integral part of most universities, but if you’re new to the Institute you may be unsure what they do and how they can help you – here’s a quick introduction to what you can expect from the Institute’s Student Services, and how to find them: What do Student Services do? There is much more to being a student than studying. Of course, your academic studies and the work you do on your course are your primary reasons for coming to the Institute. However, the challenges of everyday life don’t stop just because you’re at university – you may need some extra financial support, require advice to sort out your accommodation, or need help adjusting to living away from home for the first time, for example. Student Services are there to provide advice, guidance and support with all the non-academic aspects of being at the Institute. Student Services is made up of several teams, with different areas of expertise to ensure that you can get advice from people who have the right knowledge and experience to help you.
  • The Student Advice team are there to answer any queries you may have about all the practicalities of being a student. They can offer advice about your student accommodation and related issues like council tax, as well as more general financial advice. If you find that you’re not managing your finances as well as you could, you can get help with budgeting and managing debt. There is often extra financial help available to those in financial hardship, and the Student Advisers will be able to tell you if you’re likely to be eligible, and help you to apply. Contact: Telephone 01202 363242 or 363031; Email studentadvice@aib.ac.uk The Counselling Service is a confidential, free service which can offer you support if you feel you are having emotional issues or are struggling to cope with life, for any reason. The service is staffed by fully qualified counsellors and appointments are available during weekdays and evenings, so whether you feel you need a one-off appointment or ongoing counselling, you can speak to someone in confidence to help you through the tough times. Contact: Telephone 01202 363033; Email counselling@aib.ac.uk The Careers Service can offer you impartial advice and guidance, whether you are making long-term career plans or looking for part time work. As well as offering 1-1 careers coaching, the Careers Adviser can help you prepare the perfect CV, give you advice about how to fill in the trickiest of application forms, or guide you through starting your own business. If you are not sure whether you have chosen the right course of study, the Careers Adviser can help you explore your options in an informed and positive way. Contact: Telephone 01202 363355 Email careers@aib.ac.uk So what are the services for students?
  • 10 Student Services If you have a disability or specific learning difficulty such as dyslexia, the Disability and Learning Support team can offer you extra help and support. If you are dyslexic you may be offered additional 1-1 tutorials to help you develop your study skills. You will be offered screening at the start of your course to identify if you may be dyslexic, and will be referred to an educational psychologist if appropriate. The Disability Officer and Student Wellbeing Officer can provide advice, guidance and support if you have a physical disability, mental health problems, medical condition or a sensory impairment. If you are a higher education student you may be eligible for the Disabled Students’ Allowance, which can provide you with computer equipment, personal support or even help towards the costs of books and internet access. Many students do not realise that they are eligible and so miss out on support they are entitled to, so if you have a diagnosed condition such as dyslexia, epilepsy, diabetes or an eating disorder, for example, do get in touch with the Disability and Learning Support team for advice. Contact: Learning Support: Telephone 01202 363273; Email lsupport@aib.ac.uk Senior Disability Officer: Telephone 01202 363291; Email wellbeing@aib.ac.uk Student Wellbeing Officer: Telephone 01202 363106; Email wellbeing @aib.ac.uk
  • The Chaplaincy offers spiritual guidance to all Arts Institute students and staff. Shared with Bournemouth University and based in Talbot House on the neighbouring University campus, the chaplaincy is an inclusive chaplaincy which welcomes people of all faiths and none. Whether you want to join group worship, are looking for a friendly chat or just a quiet place to sit where you will not be disturbed, you can always be sure of a warm welcome from Canon Bill Merrington and the team of chaplains. Contact: Telephone 01202 965383; Email bmerrington@aib.ac.uk Where are Student Services? Student Services are located around a small courtyard at the edge of the campus, close to the north light studios and Phase 1 buildings. The Student Advice, Funds and Accommodation office offers a drop-in service on the ground floor; the Disability and Learning Support Service can be found at the top of the spiral staircase (lift access is available) and the Careers and Counselling Services can be found in the adjacent bungalow, with the Head of Student Services. All services are open from 8.30am – 5.00pm Monday to Thursday, and 8.30am – 4.30pm on Friday.
  • Graduation is where you are supposed to show what you can and the BEST of it, We have (tried) to collect the best graduation work from the end of 07/08 term from every course at the university to show you freshers what you will be able to do better at the end of your  BA, enjoy!

  • AD festiva l review
  • AD Art is music, and that have AIB students un- derstood a long time ago, artist listen to eve- rything from opera, house, uk garage, electro, darkwave, synth, rock, metal and back again, we´ve chosen a few of the more interesting festivals out there in europe which many aib- students went to. You hould also consider to check these out before you die.
  • 40 Festival Reviews “For the four days that we party together the atmosphere will build like a crescendo, the numerous spectacles drawing us closer and closer for the wild celebrations planned for Saturday and Sunday night.” As an interactive festival the secret Garden Party is unrivalled. If you can’t find something around the site that doesn’t make you smile cheek to cheek then you need to get out the office and start appreciating life! The beautiful site was constantly oozing with positive happy people that all seem touched by the efforts of the Gardeners. As soon as you walk on site you realise how this festival differs from others. After setting up camp I took my camera and went to explore the site. Instantly you see how SGP differs from other festivals. There is no O2 arena with chart topping acts and screaming teenagers, no intimidating police to sketch you out, no national food or drink companies exploiting the fact that you could not bring your own supplies, no ques and thanks to the heavens this weekend not a spot of rain. Instead we were exposed to a fantastic selection of music (majority of which were independent labels), friendly security staff, homemade food ranging from organic falafels to stone baked pizzas and space to skank out even in the busiest of tents. One aspect of SGP that defines itself from most other festivals was the attention to aesthetics. It would have been enough to have a ship in the middle of a lake, but no, the boat was pushed out much further. Almost every tree around the site was illuminated with ambient colored lights, heightening every fantastical inhibition contrived during the day. Each day the sun went down the site was transformed into a playground for big children. Never have I seen so many adults so perceptive of the space around them. The only way to describe the atmosphere is the polar opposite of walking around central London at rush hour. People are perceptive, curios of what has been installed and how the space has been used. I felt a type of naïve happiness throughout the weekend that was untainted by what was outside the bubble created by this event. For enabling me to re-visit this lost feeling along with all to 40 or 50 strong AIB students who attended, I would like to thank all the Head Gardner’s for making this happen. by Matthew Broughton

  • 42 Festival Reviews I Love Y ou RUS KO @ OUTL OOK FES TIVAL Let me set the scene: a typically tranquil Croatian fishing village, crystal clear waves whooshing through your toes and citrus sunsets overhead. All this with the brutal hammering of some of the Uk’s finest dubstep basslines keeping you from falling into a closing scene from home and away. Outlook festival, a real switch on the average UK setup. You all know the buzz; swilling warm cans of carling, waking up to find your tents been trampled into the muddy hole your calling a camp- site, and going to the showers means standing in a plastic box while a pissy trickle runs down your back. Although I love my ‘dirtbag time’ just as much as the next man, the Croatian benefits weren’t to be sniffed at. The mornings swim to shoo away any hangy blues, max’n and relax’n with cocktails and Djs on the beach throughout the day and even a fish supper in a beautiful little local restaurant at 3 squid- dlers a head (the icing on the cake). This all really lined you up nicely for getting yo crunk on come night time, which can be a real skill in the 4 day endurance event. The highlight for me comes in the form of the 100 man pirate party galleon, sweeping our elite team out into the ocean, dub- stepping our little pants off, then whisking back, jumping overboard and swimming to shore. A magical afternoon. It was either this or the more intimate moments of swimming and frolicking with a group of newly found friends, all unaware of my nakedness, and then revealing my situation by clambering up the rocks in that bloody moonlight. I am abliged to paint the overall picture with this report and it wasn’t all good times, our very own Upstairs Howard himself felt the harsh reality of life under Croatian security, an ex army squadron who used all their tactics to make sure he’d learnt his lesson. He sure won’t be stealing orange juice again. Also it might be added that Outlook didn’t really allow you to delve into the Croatian culture and mingle amongst its people as I think everyone there was from either London or Bristol. Saying this though there wasn’t the classic Brit’s abroad mentality among the crowd and actually a really positive party atmosphere which I’m looking forward to returning to.

  • 44 Festival Reviews and at ni ght:
  • 46 Festival Reviews On Wednesday 28th of September the Opera House staged one of the most exciting musical exploits seen in Boscombe. The event was named “An audience with…” and consisted of four support acts, three of which were local to Dorset. Pete set up this event along with the Dorset Music Forum in an attempt to find fresh local talent, so any of you who are lead to believe the papers rather than their ears, Doherty is not a savage that kicks kittens and robs old ladies for crack. You can always rely on a certain special anticipation when you go and see Doherty, an anticipation that can only be delivered when each person within a space is about to experience their musical hero. You don’t get half fans at Doherty gigs. The promotion is whispered, perhaps intentional but necessary to maintain the loyal following. This music wasn’t destined for stadiums and arenas. Its clear that he thrives in such a place as the opera house. Fitting it is that a venue steaming with nostalgia and history played host to a pensive Machiavellian poet. The crowd consisted of bohemians donning the trademark Doherty hat, vest and tattoos, partly posh, middle-class toe tappers, some skinheads and even a few older existentialist types. Regardless of age or background they adore him, chanting his name over and over before he arrives (late) on stage. I took up position at the front with the other photographers where I had just three songs to try and get that shot that would depict the night. The time flew by and soon into the 3rd song I realized that I had only taken about 20 photos. Its hard not to give 100% attentions to your ears when you have the opportunity to listen to someone you admire, however I turned my attention to the job at hand and got a few good shots. The concert was confidently delivered and a fully coherent Doherty performed a perfect cocktail of brilliant solo, Libertines and Babyshambles favourites such as “Music When the Lights Go Out” “What Katie Did” and “Lost the Art of Murder”. Babyshambles drummer Adam Ficek also joined Pete on stage for some of the set, as well as contributing to the event with his indie solo-project, HYPERLINK “http://www.myspace.com/roseskingscastles” Roses Kings Castles. Many thanks to Pete Doherty for entaintaining many on the night, and the Opera house for playing host to the night. Matthew Luke Broughton
  • 48 MA Graduantion Work Freshers Week 08 Freshers Week 08 m(on)daym(on)day
  • Over the summer holiday’s most AIB students make their way back to their home towns to earn money, see family, (which may have almost forgotten what they look like!) and wait worryingly to see if their full deposit will be returned from their previous landlords. However, we at the student union take up our newly elected seats in the Student union to plan the big welcome and (welcome back) to our students, executing a whole host of ideas and plans to entertain the masses over the fresher’s week pe- riod. I can safely say that everyone involved did a great job and the hard work really paid off! Our annual fancy dress kicked off the weeks events with homage to the great British institution that is…’Stars in their eyes’. We saw AIB students show us what their made of with people creatively dressing as everything from Chris De Burgh to Kiss...and much more. I have to say,’ you did me proud!’ With the DJ-ing delights of Big in Japan’s very own resident DJ ‘Simon Le Bon’ and Chris Rowling alongside karaoke and Rodeo rides on the LItten Tree’s very own mechanical bull, it started fresher’s off in the right direction! Our next event was at Landmarc, an impressive venue for live music. We were joined by funk band ‘Arangatang’ and DJ Phil Stones; this was a fun yet messy night for many of us, and an insight into the great po- tential of this venue for future events. To follow the funk night we took over 300 of you on a Bar Crawl through Bournemouth in teams of blue, orange (my favourite), red and yellow. Team games and general tomfoolery were enjoyed by all, giving you a bit more of a chance to get to know each other and sample the many delights of Bournemouth whilst simultaneously learning how to rapidly pass fruit to each other - no hands! (Always a valuable skill for your CV) the end of the night saw the winning title go to team Red! Friday night gave us a chance to provide you with something a bit different at 2020. We introduced ‘Higher elements, INC& medison’ three artists who met in Leeds doing music production and are well on their way to success in the UK hip-hop and dub-step scene. They came down to show us the way they do things and was all in all a very good night.
