do you mean mean pinch harmonics? if not, maybe natural harmonics or the use of a pitch shifter maybe?

if its not pinch harmonics it could be pick scratching/sliding?
scrape your pick down the length of the low (wound) strings.

give an example of where you heard it.
or a not so vague description
"The complexity of the penguins' lifestyle testifies to a Divine Creator," said one commentator on Christian Answers. "To think that natural selection or even the penguins themselves could come up with the idea to migrate miles and miles multiple times each year without their partner or their offspring is a bit insulting to my intellect. How great is our God!"

you didn't realise that you were talking about pinch harmonics so it's fair enough in my opinion
