    what technique for the string on this piece of work?

    http://www2.hku.nl/%7Ejnd/files/demo...allway_mix.mp3

    from the 9th second since then, what's the string technique name ? I try to reproduce such string effect at home, but not success, any idea? Thanks (I am using SISS)

    Sounds like martele but maybe with sul ponticello- that's when the string player bows closer to the bridge which gives the string sound a little more of biting and metallic sound. Some libraries have sul ponticello like Sonic Implants and I think VSL. The upcoming EWQLSO Gold will also have sul ponticello but I think only for tremolo.

    It's just straight stacc. strings. You could mark it marcatto in a score. It's the Rite of Spring effect only not limited to the cellos. The reason you're probably having a hard time reproducing that sound is because it's bitonal in harmony. So not only do you have the bite of the marcatto but you also have the clash of the harmony to go with it. So you get a double bite. And it's well orchestrated. So you'd have to know a bit about orchestration too to get that sound. This guy is top notch.

    Cheers,

    Jose
