The Morley echo thing is a Morley EVO-1 "oilcan" electrostatic delay 
pedal. Five pounds, and with a built-in carrying handle. Lush sound. Love 
Detail pics here, with two links in the comment to the flickr set for 
background and explanation:

The heatsinks, along with the dead hard drive on one of the heatsinks, 
were the sound sources I used for that performance, using contact mics. 
Flicking a tine of an aluminum heatsink created this beautiful metallic 
chime/"ting" sound.

To answer Skage's original questions, the entire rig runs in mono: I don't 
have a stereo PA setup, so I don't personally feel a need to work in 
stereo. As for loopers before/after fx, I tend to have an two loop pedals 
at the beginning of the signal chain, and two to three at the end. So I 
can grab a loop from Stick or theremin or whatever unaffected, process it 
with fx, catch it with the downstream loopers, then repeat.
