Abstract : This paper deals with the problem of under-determined con- volutive blind source separation. We model the contribution of each source to all mixture channels in the time-frequency domain as a zero-mean Gaussian random variable whose covariance encodes the spatial properties of the source. We consider two covariance models and address the estimation of their parameters from the recorded mixture by a suitable initialization scheme followed by an iterative expectation- maximization (EM) procedure in each frequency bin. We then align the order of the estimated sources across all fre- quency bins based on their estimated directions of arrival (DOA). Experimental results over a stereo reverberant speech mixture show the effectiveness of the proposed approach.
