I think that your idea is intriguing, but I have a few problems with your

1) Popping up a window is rarely a good idea, especially since, at times,
you are loading content into the bottom part of the frame. Some of it is
rather long, and requires more scrolling than normal to see.

2) The selection on some initial questions is screwed up. You can easily
roll over multiple choices, and leave their descriptions visible, which
obstructs the view of the actual selections.

3) The whole selection process is a little unnecessary in flash, and sort of
seems gratuitous.

4) The design is a little confusing, specifically having the
oval/supercircles misaligned to the text makes reading hard, and also looks
a little dirty.

Since I am not really a musician, I am approaching your site from the
perspective of a professional usability analyst...

Hope this helps
