Bash scripting - Don't wait for application exit

Sorry, I don't really even know what question to ask here, but basically I need to know how to make Bash not wait around for Audacious to exit to get on with the rest of this script:

amixer set Master 0
audacious ~/audio/flac/Microscopic\ Septet/2008\ -\ Lobster\ Leaps\ In/09\ -\ Lt.\ Cassawary.flac
until [ $vol = 74 ]
amixer set Master $vol
let "vol += 1"
sleep 1
exit 0
Current behaviour is to run Audacious in the terminal and then wait for the application to close before continuing, as is normal with running things in the terminal.
