After the generation of a sample of musical compositions, the rules which gave birth to these groups of compositions have been codified into a genetic code and these families, which had the capability of adapting to the environment and to reproduce themselves have been selected. The fitness the authors were in search for was about musical consonance. In this paper we present some results which could prove interesting in defining consonance/dissonance, operated automatically on musical compositions.
