MIX programs, as executed by mixvm, are composed of binary instructions loaded into the virtual machine memory as MIX words. Although you could write your MIX programs directly as a series of words in binary format, you have at your disposal a more friendly assembly language, MIXAL (see MIXAL) which is compiled into binary form by mixasm, the MIXAL assembler included in MDK.
