very high pitch (indeterminate).

Tremolos

(or

, or

) are always played as fast as possible (not measured).

Glissandi are always played proportionally to the notation.

(result)

Harmonics (

or

) are written as they should be performed. It is possible to change the note to be played, as long as the resulting harmonic is the same.

trilling note is indicated


by the accidental

the number of notes to be played in these accell./rit. is free,


but the overall duration should be respected.

Headless notes represent only approximate pitch. The number of notes to


be played is free, but the overall indicated duration should be respected.

Indeterminate glissando (approximate


pitch indicated by the lines)
: play between the bridge and the tailpiece. The string or strings to be played are indicated in the score (for example, measure 66, CB IV).

: press drawing of the bow so that a dry rattling of the string is heard (for example, measure 75, CB II, III).

: strike gently the string with the metallic end of the bow. In case the end of the bow is plastic, use a coin, or a tuning
fork. The glissando line indicates the approximate position where to strike (for example, measures 16 to 31, CB I).

: circular bowing (for example, measures 18, CB IV).

: vertical tremolo (for example, measures 79, 80, CB I).


strings
: insert the tip of the bow between two strings and strike them alternating, like a tremolo (for example, measure 33, CB III).
: body of instrument (for example, measure 42, CB IV).
: press the bow against the fourth string, so that it bends and touches the third string, making a metallic rattling sound (for example, measure 113, CB I).

Harmonic glissandos with trills or tremolos are not to be heard as normal glissandos. The result should be somewhat indeterminate, vaguely resembling pink noise.

all other indications are written in the score.


duration: approx. 10 minutes.
