The action brings together undergraduate, master, and doctoral students, professors from UFRJ, guest researchers from the Performance Today research group (PPGM-UFRJ), professors from other public institutions of higher education in Brazil and abroad and the general public, to create an international network of study, research, reflection and interpretative practice of mixed music, mainly written by live and active composers.

From May 2020, UFRJ’s Mixed Music Journeys presents a complementary set of remote and live actions, which can be carried out through social networks over the Internet and at UFRJ facilities and in other places outside the university. Questions related to artistic-musical and pedagogical creation carried out remotely are debated, to better continue the study of the multiplicity of music listening in the digital age, the perceptual issues that influence composition and performance, and also relationships between analysis and performance musical.
