If you want it to be audio-responsive, you should look into Trapcode Sound Keys [link].

Otherwise, it's a bit tough to give suggestions without knowing anything about the creative direction. If it's meant to be an audio visualization, it should probably move like we'd expect audio to move -- but you could also play with light, color, texture, depth, perspective...

Hi Walter -

- many thanks for feedback on this ---- just doing tests ATM and animating randomly in patterns ( if you know what I mean ! ) by hand isnt too bad ---- in fact much quicker and more convincing than II thought ....

----- will remember he sound keys thing just in case - you never know.

Best regards
