  Call and response (music) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In music, a call and response is a succession of two distinct phrases usually played by different musicians, where the second phrase is heard as a direct commentary on or response to the first.
In West African cultures, call and response is a pervasive pattern of democratic participation -- in public gatherings in the discussion of civic affairs, in religious rituals, as well as in vocal and instrumental musical expression.
Where call and response is most apparent in the secular music arena is in traditional and electric blues, where the most common 12-bar form is an AA'B pattern where the AA' is the call (repeated once with slight variation), and B is the response.

 The Influence of African Rhythms
The music of Africa informed the music of Charleston in a very central way; it is impossible to quantify the many influences, but it is possible to highlight three of the most recognizable and important contributions.
Talk of syncopation, call and response, and timbre can get complex and technical, but on a basic level, they are the soul of this new African American music: they give the music "looseness" and excitement, relaxation and drive.
Call and response is also crucial because it involves the audience; it transcends the seperation of audience and performers so common in the west.

 Call and Response: Tiger Teeth EP - PopMatters Music Review
In the case of Call and Response the maturation from debut to sophomore effort was quite a juxtaposition.
Call and Response's 2001 self-titled debut album was, like many debut albums, a stylistic mish mash.
Pushing into territory that was described as "impressionistic" and "beautiful", Call and Response may have forgotten about fun during their "maturation" process.

 Ladytron - 604 (Emperor Norton), Call and Response - s/t (Kindercore)
That style of music is synthesizer-heavy early 80s new wave, somewhere between Kraftwerk and Howard Jones, with a dance-able disco beat.
While these two styles of music are very different, the two bands have some similarities in sound, both being led by multiple female vocalists and both coming from the Stereolab school of analog sound using moogs, organs, and synthesizers, creating plenty of interesting sounds inside their bouncy pop melodies.
Call and Response's debut album is very reminiscent of the work of The Ladybug Transistor, sounding like a new millennium version of The Mamas and the Papas.

 Using Call-and-Response
She suggests that responses function to affirm or agree with the speaker, urge the speaker on, repeat what the speaker has said, complete the speaker’s statement in response to a request from the speaker or in spontaneous talking with the speaker, or indicate extremely powerful affirmation of what the speaker has said.
Responses can follow from a speaker’s specifically requesting them or eliciting them by manipulating their own discourse, or they can be unsolicited and spontaneously interjected into the ongoing interaction (Foster, 1989).
Analysis of this excerpt along the four dimensions—code, function, mode, and initiator—reveals that it consisted of a verbal call and a musical response; it expressed speakers' attitudes by celebrating learning (i.e., the student’s use of the more sophisticated term injured); it was highly scripted or routinized; and it was initiated by the teacher.

 Spirituals and Gospel Music
Spirituals and gospel music are related to each other, but they developed at different times in history: Spirituals rose out of the experience of enslaved Africans in Colonial America, and gospel music developed in the early twentieth century in cities.
Now traditional gospel music is sung by fl and white solists, quartets, and choirs of men or women or both.
A look at spirituals and gospel music reveals that although the musical style of the folk spiritual has changed over hundreds of years (as has much of America’s music), the core beliefs, strengths, and values of African American culture are still intact as expressed in spirituals and gospel music.

Their music is still lighter-than-air, but a newfound strain of wistfulness brings it closer to earth.
The clearest precursor to Call and Response's current sound is mid-era Stereolab; the similarity of Clough's singing to Laetitia Sadier's goes beyond having the same detached air to include sharing melodic themes, and the propensity to stress awkward syllables.
Call and Response still fall into pop hooks, and the swing can give way at any point to the plodding bass drum of a soft and muted disco chorus.

Call and Response are a musical ensemble hailing from the Bay Area, California.
With their debut self-titled album, Call And Response hopped from one label to the next (namely Kindercore and Emperor Norton), and looks like they've hopped one more time for their sophomore effort -- landing them on Badman Records.
On paper, Call and Response don't seem like much: A band that's absorbed the cleaner, quieter side of post-rock (American Analog Set, the Sea and Cake) into their collective bloodstream, plus not one but two female vocalists who might have made serious coin - or at least Chris Douridas' playlist - during trip-hop's heyday.
