Empirical results were obtained for the blind source separation of more sources than mixtures using a previously proposed framework for learning overcomplete representations. This technique assumes a linear mixing model with additive noise and involves two steps: (1) learning an overcomplete representation for the observed data and (2) inferring sources given a sparse prior on the coefficients. We demonstrate that three speech signals can be separated with good fidelity given only two mixtures of the three signals. Similar results were obtained with mixtures of two speech signals and one music signal.
