of a fern with a fever? How
about an African violet
with arthritis?
If so, then you need Martin
Sheyer's latest creation - a limited
edition CD called Music fir Plants.
Available at Royal Music in
Royal Oak and the Women's
Prerogative Bookstore in Ferndale,
the CD, which retails for $15.99, •
includes 19 tracks of electronic
music in a soothing mode.
"You could call it New Age
music, because it's created on a
computer using a musical program,
but its closer in style to classical
music," said Sheyer, an Oak Park
insurance salesman whose tradi-
tional instrument is the piano.

A born tinkerer, he made head-
lines in 2001 with the
"Bagbuster," a device he invented
to help his invalid moth-
er with kidney dialysis.
Music For Plants was
the result of tinkering
with computer pro-
grams that synthesize
the sounds of traditional
instruments - cello,
recorder, ocarina. The
CD is an easy-listening
musical melange lasting
about 40 minutes, with
titles such as "Flat
Baroque," "Queen Bee," and "L-
8 For Work."
Sheyer's father was a concert
violinist, and he "grew up in a
house where violin was the first


thing I heard in the morning."
Although he had always loved
to noodle around with the key-
board, the computer
made it possible for
him to make his musi-
cal thoughts perma-
"If I had to dreg in
kup [confuse myself]
over each note on a
piece of paper, I never
would have finished
it," Sheyer said.
And the title?
"Purely marketing.
Thousands of people put out
new CDs every day. This was a
way to make it stand Out from
the crowd." El
