Stapes is the first piece in a series of three trios collectively entitled Middle Ear. The stapes (or stirrup) is the smallest in the chain of three bones that transmit vibrations from the eardrum to the internal ear in the process of transformation of external soundwaves to a response within the listener. In this work, the players work both together and against each other, in individual and collective struggles for articulacy.
