This paper presents a simple approach for implementing Interactive Evolutionary Computation (IEC) - a paradigm in which humans directly intervene in fitness evaluation - in the field of musical melody generation. Music is an art and, as all kinds of art, it involves creativity. However, creativity is still a human capability. A Genetic Algorithm (GA) based application has been developed and tested. The initial population was generated according to Zipf's Law. Simple melodies, obtained in a few iterations, can be quickly transformed into complete and interesting songs.
