Expressed in live performance as the 'noise shaman' of Northern CO the aim of Rejekted Kauses is to create meditative atmospheres out of the noise found in rhythm, percussion and the cycling beats that can happen in the midst of chaos. Philosophically based in the idea of Iconoclasm and meditation. Making noise music on and off in Northern CO for over 20 yrs principle member Ragz Rejected has found permanent boundaries within the personal noise project Rejekted Kauses. Having played the annual Northern Colorado music festival FoCoMX numerous times as well as hosting a monthly noise night at long missed GNU Gallery(Fort Collins CO) Rejekted Kauses has become a staple of Fort Collins noise over the last 9yrs. In addition to solo endeavours Rejekted Kauses was also a principle part of the industrial and performance art group Die Eisenhauer, which also played FoCoMX in the GNU Gallery era. Highlights for that group was a junk show played at ReSource yard in which all of the instruments played that night came from the used construction supplies and equipment sold by ReSource yard.

== A brief history of bands that are direct connections ==

The first was Chemikill Discharge, an industrial band that made efforts to play songs for about a year before it spiraled more into a noise jam session. Recordings were made and briefly appeared online, there's most likely a cd kicking around storage still in someones collection. Next was a group called Rekabites, that played one show in a basement on Halloween. This is where Ragz really got into noise and what he feels is roots industrial music. Movie samples run through effects for lyrics, which were played on an old tape deck. The rest of the equipment consisted of fly wheels, bicycle rims, 55 gallon drums, chain posts, and an HVAC box. After that one and only show the group dissipated and morphed into last band Ragz was in before a ten year break. Projekt consisted of Ragz Rejekted and a fellow noise lover using chimes built from fence post, an old record player, huge garage door springs, and other assorted remnants left from Rekabites. This group also played just one show. It was as the opening act before a rave at famed Colorado venue Mishawaka. As the set was so early the normal canyon crowd was still eating dinner and Projekt were asked to leave the stage by management. It seemed the regular dinner patrons had no appreciation for two guys with a noise fetish!
