I don't know which music player you are using, but Amarok has a script
that does just what you are trying to do.  I am in gnome now, so I
don't have the exact name.  I do remember that it wasn't very hard to
find in the first place, downloadable right from Amarok's script

Works acceptably well like a screen saver.  It renders the album art
and text with the track number, name, album, artist, etc.  You can
configure how big it is.

I recommend this because you say it isn't worth acquiring the skills
to do what want.  So here is a turnkey solution.  If you are
interested and have trouble finding it, let me know and I'll get the
details when I am working with my desktop.
