Because of the experimental nature of Cage's compositions, most of the composer's works, especially those before the I Ching period, have escaped analysis because of the limits of traditional analysis. The writer will examine Cage's In the Name of the Holocaust (1942), an often overlooked and underrated piece for prepared piano. He will show why traditional analysis is not appropriate for prepared piano music and how the application of spectrograph analysis could provide an effective method for revealing the timbral and spectral relationships of the prepared notes in the score. To recreate Cage's preparations more accurately, the author will reference the composer's video on "Indeterminacy" in which Cage directs pianist Margaret Leng Ten on how to prepare the piano for In the Name of the Holocaust
