If I were doing something like this, I'd probably use Trapcode Particular in combination with Trapcode Soundkeys.
Aaron sure has a point, but if you allow me that observation: Forego the "audio waveform" part. It's going to look extremely iffy and will get tiresome to watch after the first three words. Instead, add some small soft "bumps" in the overall flow based on the timing of the phrases. People will want to "feel" the impact of the spoken words on the animation, but not necessarily lip-read a waveform (which therefore you would have to tune endlessly so it looks "nice" in addition...).
Alternately Dean, you should check out Trapcode's Form plugin. You would have to tweak Form until you got it to look like your logo (sounds like you'd need the string settings), but once that's done, you have a fully 3D object and inputs that allow you affect the 'strings' with an audio track. Also it can input displace maps, twist and turn the Form and many other features which could help you.
Actually, on re-reading, maybe I misinterpreted. I thought you wanted to trace wavy lines in 3D space, but if you just want to move parts of the logo in space, Particular might be overkill.

Trapcode 3D stroke along with Soundkeys may work better for lines.
Thank you all for your replies. It looks as though Trapcode is the way to go.
