I'd use something like SDL_sound or SDL_mixer and play the sounds internally.
I've made a toy that I do viz stuff with, you can grab it at:
it uses SDL_mixer (and fftw if you have it...)
tune the Makefile to your system, make and run sdlwav musicfile.ogg or mp3...or whatever your SDL_mixer handles.
at least using one of these libraries will give you the chance to be portable, unlike WMP would be.
