Ronan is credited with the instrumental, lyrical, and vocal aspects of the band's music. In the past he was also a journalist and the webmaster for the dark electro magazine Side-Line.

Harris also performed vocals for the futurepop supergroup Bruderschaft on their Forever EP, and appeared on AFI's 2006 Decemberunderground album, providing electronic sequences and effects for some of the songs. Additionally, he has produced the 2001 Angels and Agony album Eternity as well as remixes for a fair number of bands. He was a co-founder of Dependent Records but left the label after VNV's Future Perfect album was released.

In 2006, Ronan Harris founded his new solo project Modcom, producing instrumental electronic music based entirely on the usage of analog sequencers and synthesizers.

Ronan also performs live DJ sets—mainly in Germany—but also in the USA at venues such as Das Bunker.

In late 1990, Ronan Harris moved to Toronto, Canada. Between 1990 and 1993, Harris continued to work on VNV Nation's material while touring with Nitzer Ebb. Finally, in 1994, Ronan Harris moved back to Europe where he soon met up with Mark Jackson, who joined VNV Nation as the drummer for live shows.
