    what's going on?

    ...at the beginning of this excellent vsl demo?
    http://vsl.co.at/Player2.aspx?Lang=1&DemoID=5051

    Mainly with the strings. I'm not desperate for a detailed harmonic breakdown or anything, but I'm not certain what the strings are doing. Is it a gliss, or an upwards run, or something different..?

    TIA

    hello, from what I heard, I would say that it is a 'tutti' upward glissando where the strings execute the glissando with a tremolando effect. This is acomplished by sliding the finger along the string while keeping the bow tremolando. The produced effect is quite interesting and it simulates quite well an upward run, but with a distinct character.

    Best regards.

    Yeah - I thought I heard tremolo in there.

    Thanks for the (über-quick) reply!
