Certain Violin Technique
Hey. I was just wondering: does anyone know what kind of violin technique this is? It sounds like a glissando, but the notes aren't connected. It's more like a pitch-bend, and it's playable on string instruments. It makes a really eerie noise. Here's a link from A Knife in the Dark from The Lord of the Rings soundtrack. Pay special attention to the violins in about measure 6 (4/4 time). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YwIVs_F2kMo
Let me know what you think it is.
