Al Cerulo has been praised for his work as a musician and educator both nationally and internationally and is an advocate for the commissioning and performing of new works by both established and up-and-coming composers to help move forward and breathe new life into the art. 

Amplified Perception is a seventy-five-minute soundscape sculpted through the music of five composers whose compositional styles are each uniquely beautiful: Jude Traxler, Eve Beglarian, Mathew Rosenblum, Paula Matthusen, and Randy Gibson. Writing for a single voice, each composer enhances the acoustic timbre of their instrument with live amplification and/or digital processing. Featuring sound design by Jude Traxler and a prelude and postlude of pre-recorded media by Cerulo and Echo Artifact, the journey will take the listener through various sound worlds–from the ambient to periodic to unearthly.
