Run XMMS Blursk as Standalone

I was wondering if anybody knew how to run the XMMS Blurscope (blursk) as a standalone application. I just want to be able to run an executable file and have it pop up. The only reason I want to be able to do this is so that I can tell fluxbox what window paramaters I want on it to get rid of the window decorations and size it to a certain width and height and location on the screen, and sort of use it as a superimposed background. I don't want to run the thing entirely in the root window because that would chew up way too much processing power. I just wanna make it look like its on the background, and then have a black background or whatever, so whenever I start playing music it just starts going. If anybody knows how to do this, it'd be of much help. Right now I think it just runs as a plugin connected through XMMS.
