Need to create something similar with C4D and AfterEffects

Really could use some help with this...

See youtube link below 12-29 sec
"https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=12&v=h-_SBGKKBVU"

I need to do something very similar to the above youtube clip.

I do have the shape (one tile) as a Cinema 4d object
I need to set up a 9x11 array and then bounce them to a music clip.

Can any one give me an idea how to do this?
I am fairly adept at AE but have never really worked with Cinema 4D.

So please try to be as detailed as you can.

Thank you!!!!
Kevin

Put your tiles in a cloner, set the mode to Grid Array, and add a sound effector to affect position and rotation. Look for tutorials for using the sound effector like this:

No problem. We were all newbies at some point. I'm just a hobbyist myself.

Assuming you are using a CC version of AE, you can import a C4D file into After Effects and by adding it to a comp it will have Cineware in the effects menu.

Edit: use the standard "import file" command.
