Strip wiring help

I have a question that I haven’t found addressed here: I’m creating a small “star” shaped display which, because of the DATA constraints will have 8 lines (strips) of 5 LEDs per strip but wired ZIGZAG. Either from center or from edge or from edge/center’edge etc. So if I want to display a sound pattern, Gracentric for example, as this pattern runs from the center of a strip and displays outward. This would be wonderful to look at as a “8 pointed star” but I don’t know how to wire up and address the data stream.
Can anyone point me in the right direction to realize this display?
Thanks in advance.
