What's this playing technique?

Hello everyone,

The string player here (violin assumed, but please correct me), plays a sustained note and after about 5-6 secs switches to some what sounds like to me some sort of strong vibrato harmonic-like tone. It's happens throughout the piece.

What is the player doing here? I've heard it quite a bit in The Witcher 3 soundtrack too. And more importantly, but I'm expecting a no, do any sample libraries demonstrate anything like it? I mean it's freaking gorgeous.

Any information from prospective string-gurus is much appreciated :thumbsup:
