‘Songs of an Empty Room’ is the second solo album from Iranian sound artist Maryam Sirvan, also one half of the electronic duo NUM.

'Songs of An Empty Room' is a static inner journey into infinity, a story of a secluded room on a dull, grey summer evening.
These works delve into the concept of detachment from the outer world and seek tranquility in an imaginary, non-existent inner space―a craving for otherworldly existence and exploration for a personal perception beyond time and space in a hallucinating manner.
‘Songs of An Empty Room’ is an exploration through sonic territories employing limited acoustic sources: obsessively, exclusively, electric guitar and voice. It offers textural structures using digital manipulation and sampling, creating personal atmospheres and soundscapes.
