Leap (/ˈlɛp/; Irish:Léim Uí Dhonnabháin) is a village in County Cork, Ireland, situated at the north end of Glandore Harbour, several miles inland from the seacoast. Leap is the second biggest village in County Cork after Kiskeam as it has the most acres in townlands.
Its full Irish name means "O'Donovan's Leap" and is derived from the story of a chieftain called O'Donovan, who was pursued by English soldiers, but escaped them by jumping across a ravine at the bottom of the village.
Leap is located on the N71national secondary road which runs through West cork from Cork city (one hour drive away). It is in the parish of Kilmacabea which also includes Glandore village.
The village currently has 3 bars, of which 2 serve food and one which is a music venue. It also has a furniture & hardware store, a petrol station/shop,and a hairdresser. There is also a block of flats . There are 2 fast food diners, and a Gaelic football pitch at the bottom of the village.
In music, a step, or conjunct motion, is the difference in pitch between two consecutive notes of a musical scale. In other words, it is the interval between two consecutive scale degrees. Any larger interval is called a skip (also called a leap), or disjunct motion.
More generally, a step is a smaller or narrower interval in a musical line, and a skip is a wider or larger interval, with the categorization of intervals into steps and skips is determined by the tuning system and the pitch space used.
Melodic motion in which the interval between any two consecutive pitches is no more than a step, or, less strictly, where skips are rare, is called stepwise or conjunctmelodic motion, as opposed to skipwise or disjunct melodic motion, characterized by frequent skips.
Leap is the second album released by Drop Trio. The album debuted in 2004 and was self-released by the band. The album is noted as having been recorded entirely improvised in the studio.
History / Premise
During a long drive in their van in late 2003, while on a short tour of cities in Texas, the members of Drop Trio (then Ian Varley, Nuje Blattel and Nino Batista) discussed ideas for a date to record their next record, the follow-up to their debut, 2003's Big Dipper. Deliberations eventually, and unintentionally, realized the idea of recording an entirely improvised record in the studio. They subsequently booked time in the renowned SugarHill Recording Studios for the date February 29, 2004 (which was in fact Leap Day, a part of the inspiration for the album's name). John Griffin of SugarHill, who had previously engineered the band's debut album, was called on once again for this ambitious session.
On February 29, 2004, at 10 AM, Ian Varley, Nuje Blattel, and Nino Batista rolled into SugarHill with dozens of instruments in tow. It took over four hours to set up the studio with all the instruments, electronics, and microphones that would be needed to produce the eventual two and a half hours of straight musical improvisation.
A garden is a planned space, usually outdoors, set aside for the display, cultivation, and enjoyment of plants and other forms of nature. The garden can incorporate both natural and man-made materials. The most common form today is known as a residential garden, but the term garden has traditionally been a more general one. Zoos, which display wild animals in simulated natural habitats, were formerly called zoological gardens. Western gardens are almost universally based on plants, with garden often signifying a shortened form of botanical garden.
Some traditional types of eastern gardens, such as Zen gardens, use plants sparsely or not at all. Xeriscape gardens use local native plants that do not require irrigation or extensive use of other resources while still providing the benefits of a garden environment. Gardens may exhibit structural enhancements, sometimes called follies, including water features such as fountains, ponds (with or without fish), waterfalls or creeks, dry creek beds, statuary, arbors, trellises and more.
