Figure 1

Magnitude spectrogram of an approximately 6-s-long excerpt of monaural mixture signal composed of percussive and harmonic sounds. The percussive sounds form vertical lines because of their smoothness in frequency and sparseness in time; the harmonic sounds form horizontal lines because of their sparseness in frequency and smoothness in time; the grey level represents the energy of each frequency.
