I don't know what it's called but it reminds me a little of the bowing technique in this tune (see :28 for example):

BTW, I gotta get one of those strap things to keep my fiddle in place!

When the work's all done and the sun's settin' low,

I pull out my fiddle and I rosin up the bow.

I'm going to guess bariolage

Oh heck - dunno about the "technique" bit or what it's called - but that's just another tune I HAVE to have a shot at !!!!

I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes.  

Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)

It's a bit of Ricochet (the way Mark is doing it) and in a way bariolage because he repeats a lot of notes and plays mostly open strings. The bow bounces by itself when you change directions and move your arm up and down. The secret is to find the right location, keep the hair flat, and even flip the wrist a bit to get it started on each bow change. The 1st Paganini Caprice is probably the most popular and well known example of Ricochet which is why ozmous's example is so great. :)
