The title refers to themes 'leaping' over each other at several times in the piece. The main theme is stated on marimba and bass just after the opening motives and provides the meat for the two solo sections. Performed by Nik Phelps (sax and flute), Carla Kihlstedt (violin), Marika Hughes (cello), Andrew Higgins (electric bass) and Fred Morgan (marimba)
