Phosphor is a reasonably common screensaver on Linux. It's pretty customizable, and can take the output of another program as input. Interestingly enough this example I read today illustrates this. Perhaps there's an API or plugin for your media player you could use to create a script to achieve your goal using Phosphor. IIRC other apps like pidgin can read track info from various media players. That may be an avenue to explore.
