Create a solid, with an instance of the Audio Waveform plugin, and make sure the Start and End points are all the way at each left and right edge of your canvas. Set the Display Options in the Audio Waveform plugin to "Analog Dots." Duplicate it, and change a few settings, perhaps decreasing and increasing the Displayed Samples property on each new layer. When you have a sufficiently complex number of dots on a straight line, precompose all of the Audio Waveform solid layers you've created.

Next, apply Polar Coordinates to the precomp. Set the type of conversion to "Rect to Polar." You'll now have a circle of dots.

Now, you can load different audio files to the precomp, and set each layer to react with greater or lesser intensity to the sounds. That way, they'll react together, but at different levels.
