The concern of the blind source separation problem is to extract the underlying source signals from a set of their linear mixtures, where the mixing matrix is unknown. It was discovered recently, that use of sparsity of source representation in some signal dictionary dramatically improves the quality of separation. In this work we use the property of multiscale transforms, such as wavelet or wavelet packets, to decompose signals into sets of local features with various degrees of sparsity. We use this intrinsic property for selecting the best (most sparse) subsets of features for further separation. Experiments with simulated signals, musical sounds and images demonstrate significant improvement of separation quality.
