Fill "Now Playing" empty space

Hey all!

I'm pretty new to the community and an overall novice with scripts and code, other than having the ability to copy and paste, so I was looking for some help.

My "master" Touch Bar features the Now playing widget, as I listen to a lot of music while working and using my MacBook. I have the Now Playing widget set to "hide if no player is running"

I was wondering if there is a way to fill the gap while the Now Playing widget is inactive with another widget (for example, the reminders widget), then have Now Playing populate back to the Touch Bar when audio is being played
