The idea behind the memoir-based setup below is that the title should be confined in the setting of the \newgeometry, while the image should span the whole width of the title page sitting at its bottom, and the remainder of the pages should follow \setlrmargins{*}{*}{1}. I'd like to arbitrarily move the title up and/or down. But changing the top margin in my \newgeometry does not affect the vertical positioning of the title. How can I fix this?

\documentclass[a4paper, 12pt, twoside, openany, final]{memoir}



    \newgeometry{left=1.5in, right=1in,top=-2in, bottom=0in}
        \YUGE \textbf{The title}
        \node[scope fading=north, inner sep=0pt, outer sep=0pt]{
    \chapter{My chapter}
