This article discusses a few questions concerning the use of generative processes in composition and automatic music creation. The author discusses the problems involved, focusing on the use of interactivity, and describes the use of interactive evolution as a way of introducing interactivity in composition. The installation MutaSynth is presented as an implementation of this idea.
