"All very useful thoughts. I supose it's best to start making artistic aquaintances in one's local environment - especially for someone from outside U.S. (like me). Thanks for a fruitful discussion! ;)"

"Luck is such an underrated factor too - in all aspects of life if you look around at those who "made it" or "just missed out" - there is sometimes no difference, or those who just missed out sometimes had greater skills.

"Facebook is good for networking and this can take two forms.
 
1. Network among your peers who have the same goal.  You can offer/receive advice and comments and this helps to keep you going.  You can also network with film makers who are in the…"

"I think the sad thing we nearly all face is: how many other thousands of people are trying to do what we do but with little or no success?
 
I tend to think that a unique music/ video combination that goes viral somehow is the answer...how did the…"

"I personally don't think Facebook is the best medium for marketing, but it can help. What I did a year or so back was made a Facebook music page. Just like someone would make for a band. Then, update it regularly with information on new compositions…"

"Good point. I also had a conversation recently about facebook and other ways of composer marketing. And the problem seems to be that film composers are not considered a group of interests separate from musicians in general. And the reason I think…"

Paweł Jeleniewski replied to Adrian Allan's discussion Can Drugs aid the process of composition ?
"For me anything that affects (i.e. artificially alters) your consciousness / thought process, is cheating. Coffee or cigarettes affect mainly your body functions, or your state of mind at most."

"I wish I had an answer to this as in today's world even greatness goes unnoticed if it is not packaged and marketed at the right audience. On the other hand marketing has become such a fine art form that a formula seems to have been devised for the…"

Paweł Jeleniewski replied to Adrian Allan's discussion Can Drugs aid the process of composition ?
"Drugs don't give you ideas, but composition is not just the idea. A key to succesful composition is the processing of that idea. Whether drugs help, or get in the way with that - i guess it all depends. But they affect the process never the less.…"

"There's also a matter of artistic responsibility. When you're on some kind of drug, you somehow rely on it's effect. Therefore I wouldn't feel entitled to sign the effect of such experiment as my work, even if it was any good.

Emily Bond replied to Paweł Jeleniewski's discussion Etude #1 - electronic
"You got some really eerie sounds, and they were very well-composed.  I just find this very interesting, because it is so far out of my realm of useable sounds.  But I found myself listening to it the way I would more traditionally composed music…"
