About Vektroid

Well, folks! It's about time I did this.

Hi, I'm Ramona. I've been doing music & graphic design for about 15 years now--over half of my life as it turns out--and over that course of time I've worked under a huge number of names: Vektroid, Macintosh Plus, Laserdisc Visions, 情報デスクVIRTUAL, PrismCorp Virtual Enterprises, Sacred Tapestry, Tanning Salon....

My art was never grounded in aspirations to make money. Most of what I'm known for was made when I still lived with my parents, and that changed when I moved out on my own in mid-2012, which was about 6 months after Floral Shoppe was released, and only a month and a half after I released "情報デスクVIRTUAL". Eventually, after two years of struggling to fit into full-time job elsewhere, I had to look toward music to make my living. This was maybe the most difficult period of my life, the process of trying and failing to make myself more marketable when I knew very well that I could make it in this business with a different attitude.

Things eventually shifted--in 2016, I hit a "sweet spot" of being able to create without letting my O.C.D. stop me halfway to the finish line because it "wasn't good enough". This led to a huge number of albums being in progress to this day--No Earth, for example, is an album I started on way back in 2016, and have been working on ever since. It's still not finished, but I know it can happen someday. However, the constant turmoil of trying to pay bills alongside that longer-term work has proven unsustainable for quite some time now. I would love to release all of this music, but it isn't actually finished enough to release in its current state. Long periods of repetition in songs that don't benefit from it, sprinkled with great ideas that I would love to bring into sharper focus with some careful post-production. This has been a goal of mine for a while and I never want to stop until I've followed through on the promises those albums made.

Ultimately, that is what brings me here today. I want to finish these albums, but the financial pressure constantly forces me to shift my focus elsewhere to make ends meet. With your help, I'll be able to continue doing this work without making those often counter-productive compromises of having to constantly fret about whether it's paying my bills. I would like to make it worth your while.

On this Patreon, you'll find a wide variety of content. Some things you can look forward to...
• Previews of unreleased songs, sometimes maybe even the complete versions
• Special Patreon role in our Discord because the kids love those things (invite link found below!)
• Exclusive mixes, DJ sets and other full-length projects
• Lost demos, sketches and remixes
• Graphic design and visual art previews, works-in-progress, and more
• Mashups and edits that I'm simply not willing to post anywhere else (hehe.)
• Subscriber-only livestreams
• Hell, I might even do some music & graphic design classes someday. We'll see about that one.

To cap it off, I'm elated to announce that I'll also be debuting my new series "Let's RaRa!" exclusively on Patreon. It's a highly curated video mixtape series to serve as somewhat of a compendium for my best Twitch streams. It's somewhat of a highlight reel, but they'll be released as hour-long mixtapes. I've done four, maybe five episodes so far, and I love them dearly. I can't actually even believe how much I like them. Hopefully you do too. Perhaps one day I'll make them publicly available, but I'm still on the fence about it. In the meantime, I thought this would be a much better way to get them out there.

I'll be uploading stuff on a sporadic basis, so keep your eyes peeled for alerts on my Twitter:
https://twitter.com/vektroidlive
... as well as my Discord server, which I highly encourage you to join (because it rocks):
https://discord.com/invite/puRVFZ4

Anyway, that's it for now. There will likely be more perks over time, so get excited! I really want to make this worthy of your contribution, and I hope you'll quickly see why. Join us today and experience the CHAOS!

Love ya,
Ramona
