In this paper, the author discusses what he sees as some of the key issues concerning the role of analysis in electroacoustic (E/A) music. This is followed by an explanation of the role that the Intention/Reception (I/R) method can play in the analysis of E/A music - the I/R method involves collecting, analysing and evaluating composer intention and listener response data. Finally, the author offers a brief overview of the initial stages of the latest phase of development of the I/R project.
