Controlling sound from one swf in another

I have a Flash movie that is playing an MP3 file. It's used to play background music within a standard web page. There's an "On" and an "Off" button to toggle the audio on and off. FLA can be downloaded here:

www.precisiondev.net/temp/music.fla

I need to create a second Flash movie that will turn the sound off in the first movie. This will be used in popup pages that contain their own sound (e.g. a QuickTime video) and need to ensure that there is no other sound playing from the other movie. The video will not be in a Flash file, but I'd like to have an "invisible" Flash movie on the page just to turn sound off in the main page.

Any pointers on accomplishing this task?
