Link multiple layers to one mask path + slider to offset space?

Hi,

I'm trying to figure out how to make an expression for this and I'm stuck. The client wants objects on screen to move from their positions to the center like they're swirling down a drain (attached is a rough idea of the number/size of objects and the swirling mask path that touches all objects). It would be nice to have them be able to all be attached to one slider that can change the distance between objects, and also have all the objects reference one path so if I want to adjust the path I don't need to copy/paste it on all layers.

Thanks!

Check out a script called WayFinder on aescripts, it allows you to attach and guide artwork along shapes layers.
