Research on the application of Interactive Evolutionary Computation (IEC) to the field of musical composition has been improved in recent years, marking an interesting parallel to the current trend of applying human characteristics or sensitivities to computers systems. However, past techniques developed for the IEC-based composition have not necessarily proven very effective for the sake of professional use. This is due to the large difference between data representation used by IEC and authorized classic music composition. To solve these difficulties, we purpose a new IEC approach to music composition based on the classical music theory. In this paper, we describe an established system according to the above idea, and how successfully we can compose a piece using the system.
