Most known as the animator for directing numerous episodes of the animated TV series The Simpsons, as well as The Simpsons Movie, David Silverman walked out onto the TEDxBerkeley stage playing a tuba last Saturday.
He gave a very funny historical summary of the tuba and why he started playing it as a teenager.
The main reason that he started playing the tuba is that he thought it would be funny.
He learned how to draw all the instruments in the orchestra and showed a number of his sketches from piano books ranging from Alfred publishing to tuba characters and Bart.
The video of his talk and tuba playing should be up on the TEDxBerkeley site sometime in the next couple of weeks.
