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?

Didn't realize it was this simple when calling from a completely separate swf. Thanks for the help.
