What would you like to do?
In your conky config, add:
own_window yes
own_window_class Conky
own_window_type override
This line keeps conky from getting controlled by the wm:
own_window_type override
You'll also want
background yes
(its set as 'no' near the top of your conkyrc) to launch in the background, once your config is all set. Or launch with the daemon flag, -d.

You mentioned compositing, while not needed for this, if you end up looking for something for compositing features (ie transparency) check out compton. Not sure if something newer and better has popped up but its decent and lightweight.
