Yes you can. It begins to depend on what sort of music you're using and how you get it into Maya but it's certainly possible (I'm assuming you want an After Effects / Sound keys equivalent for Maya). I suspect it would be easier to pull off in After Effects and render separate layers in Maya to get the animation you're wanting, however.

I typed the following into Google and found these links:

Dear John
Thank you very much. Hope it's not too late to respond to you.
Are you familiar to HOUDINI ?
I heard it has a tool called "Chops" that allows working with imported music file to drive animation, I am a beginner in 3 D. How do you compare MAYA to Houdini if you know it. Thank you very much in advance.
Steve

I've read about Houdini but hadn't used it before. Maybe someone else will chime in and give their opinion on the program and how it relates to what you're trying to do?
