“No Region Would”
“No Region Would” is a mondegreen. It’s a mishearing or misinterpretation of a phrase as a result of near-homophony, in a way that gives it a new meaning. The title may trigger a reference to a popular song or a novel depending on which side of the 20/21 century fence the mind is leaning on. Experiences could ripple into catharsis as woeful foundations pull out momentarily to expose possible engagements to feast on. Artists were chosen by trusted coincidences; upon opening a car door, called by a lost connection, salvaging discarded work, random findings on a bookshelf, hesitant pause in a conversation, drive-by sightings, ear candy, accidental phone call, chance and an echo.
As the title suggests the capacity of an idea is being played out in free association, personal referential space, challenges of hierarchy, territory, and fidelity of sound.
