Mash points line connection with Bezier curve

Hi folks,

 

I'm trying to make a line graph like this: https://openprocessing.org/labs/opviz

 

My idea is to generate a group of points with Mash, then use Trails node to generate connection. However, I want the lines to be curve lines, just like the way Maya's node graph looks. I'm wondering if this can be done in Mash or Bifrost graph? Attaching a screenshot to demonstrate the kind of node graph I'm trying to make.

 

Thanks in advance!

There is also this compound which could be useful: https://area.autodesk.com/downloads/catenary-curve/

Hey there I did the droopy strands one also MJCG's compounds has some to create different curves as well.

 

My droopy strands one is very simple, catenary I think is more accurate for a type of curve but to do what you're trying to achieve you might have to mod droopy_strands so each strand projects toward the centre of your circle and not just down in Y. But it should connect all your points with lines and everything.
