Zen Seizure

Zen Seizure is a sentient thought form, a "rap program" of sorts created by Seattle artist Christopher Williams. It is heavily based off the design of a previous rap program, named Zgamer. It functions as a rhyme-scheme generator and the link between the physical world and an etheric plane of pure creative energy artisits tap into dubbed the "Alter Native Realm". Zen Seizure refines this raw creativity into understandable thought patterns and imagery, then translates them into lyrics, using the host's human concepts and langauge. Christopher also uses Zen Seizure as a stage name. Zen Seizure, like any piece of tech has it's limits and the freestyle rap format is not readily supported. The host often has to freestyle as himself to compensate. However a patch is rumored to be in development which would solve that issue.
