Extracting Sound Objects by Independent Subspace Analysis

Document Thumbnail

In this paper we present a scheme for unsupervised extraction of sound objects or sources from a single recording containing a mixture of sounds. The separation/extraction procedure is performed by orthogonal projection of the mixed sound onto sub-spaces that are derived by clustering of transform coefficients, such as coefficients obtained by PCA or ICA. The clustering step reveals a residual non-linear grouping structure of the signal that is omitted by the linear transform. To achieve independence we are searching for partitioning that maximizes the mutual information between a component and a set to which it belongs. This information is obtained by considering a pairwise distance measure among all coefficients. Source separation experiments are reported in the paper.
