The Halloween project indicated a "spicy" bowing.

Specifically, @38 second - the first 2 bow strokes, @1:00 - 3 quick strokes.

My attempts to land the bow and execute saucy, quick, emphatic notes with a little "verve" resulted in a bouncy bow. Played with the bow on the strings wasn't very exciting stuff.

Two questions:

1) does this have a technique name? (so I can search on it)

2) how to practice this: is the stroke landed with momentum (like landing a plane place-3596 momentum is part of the landing) or instead, is the technique more subtle... such as set the bow gently then push/pull?

Thanks in advance! Tired of my soupy sound...

I would describe it as an upper half Marcato bowing.

Just made up a new word describing the sound I was generating:

Minestrato.

Italian for chunky vegetable soup :)

imagine how creative the terminology would be if you were a 18th century composer in Itally. "That wasn't minestrato! you played that spaghetini!" "no, no thats supposed to be lasagnato!"
