Ghanaian Gospel Artist Ruby Barnor Launches Book: “Aesthetics of Music Composition”

One of Ghana’s finest Gospel Musicians, Ruby Barnor has added another book to her collections.

She has officially launched her latest book, “Aesthetics of Music Composition.”

Launching the Book, Pastor Addomah Gyabaah of Kingdom Power Family International, said the Book, “Aesthetics of Music Composition” has come as an answer to many life’s questions and that the world needs the Book.

He said music aesthetics is a philosophy that considers the source, type, development, intention, performance, perception, and significance of a musical composition, and averred that every single individual needs to learn and understand these philosophies hence the Book is the right tool to do that.

Also, the Acting President of MUSIGA, Mr. Henry Kojo Bessa Simons who graced the occasion and reviewed the Book indicated that many musicians are not aware of the many lives they may touch with their music because they have not realized the Aesthetics of Music they do.

According to him, the Book authored by Ruby Barnor is a useful tool for both composers and music lovers.

“People get music from everywhere and there is spiritual side to music, which we usually might not see but the composer sees through that and create a piece that will solve our emotional needs. That is achieved using aesthetics,” he said.

He urged all to grab a copy of the Book.

The Book, according to Ruby Barnor expresses how composers transmit inner emotions to listeners through their music.

Speaking at the launch of her book, Ruby Barnor indicated that a lot goes into music and for that matter, there is the need for people to understand and know what a composer really put into his or her music because music does many things to the body and the soul.
