... you're watching an anime and someone pulls out a violin and starts to play it like this:

 

wtf?Image Enlarger

 

and the playing is so good that it levels the crystal labyrinth that she and the other characters are in.

 

EDIT:  Went I posted this I was unaware this was a legitimate technique.  I should have googled it first.  *feels stupid now*

You also can make an animal or some people wince from two or three rooms away by bowing on the after-length like that.  Done hard/loud enough, it probably could level a crystal labyrinth, or at least put some cracks in it.  LOL

The thing is, this is a reimagining of a series that came out a while ago.  In that series, her playing sounded awful, she was also a comic relief villain.  In this one, her playing sounds good.  When I saw her out her bow there, I assumed it would be the high pitched discordant stuff from the first series.  It gets even funnier when you realize she's a living porcelain doll and that violin is MAYBE 6-8in long so realistically  even if she was playing in the normal area it would sound high pitched and squeaky.

Even though it's a legitimate technique the sound won't be good. It's a special effect.

Are you seeing something I'm not ?

Is it a video or just photo's, when I click on the arrow it moves to another tab and enlarges itself.

Yeah, I saw a video where a violist was explaining about playing behind the bridge. I also read about playing by dragging the bow across the bridge or another part of the instrument. I'm just wondering when/if you would actually use that in a piece of music.

It's a screenshot of a video that I was watching.  I had to pause it to take it and when I did it had the "play icon" on it.  Notice where she's holding her bow, its below the bridge and playing with her bow there she's able to play this (if the video lags, its doing that to me too):

It was only a screenshot of a video but I was referring to the picture that clearly shows a girl bowing behind the bridge.
