A mix of fiction, fantasy and fact, The Dry vs. the Moist is an intercontinental collaboration between three artists: the U.S. writer Rick Moody, the Australian sound artist (and Radio Eye producer) Sherre DeLys, and pianist Chris Abrahams (the Necks).

The resulting assemblage includes seven short stories ranging far and wide in both style and subject matter, but all the while revealing consistencies between between two different places (USA / Australia) and two very different environments (the desert / the sea.)
