This paper proposes a method of In- teractive Evolutionary Computation (IEC) for large scale target domains of which structure is well or- ganized. In general, it is effective to divide a large problem into a number of sub-problems to solve it efficiently. For IEC tools, it becomes possible by adding a GUI-based facility for the user to indicate some part of genotype protected against random ini- tialization and mutation. The user can try alter- native candidates only on the non-protected parts as a sub-problem through breeding process: itera- tion of subjective selection, mutation, and crossover. This method was invented through development of an application for musical composition support sys- tem, but it is useful for other domains, such as graph- ics.
