Hi Sue,

Have you spoken to either Martin Cooke or Guy Brown at the Department of
Computer Science, University of Sheffield, or Dan Ellis at Berkeley?

    Martin Cooke <m.cooke@dcs.sheffield.ac.uk>
    Guy Brown <guy@dcs.shef.ac.uk>
    Dan Ellis <dpwe@ICSI.Berkeley.EDU>

They have been experimenting on the use of general-purpose methods of
auditory scene analysis to segregate sounds (including voices) from other
sounds.  Guy is now involved in some work on music as well.
