OSC-Namespace and OSC-State: Schemata for Describing the Namespace and State of OSC-Enabled Systems

Bergstrom, Ilias and Llobera, Joan

Proceedings of the International Conference on New Interfaces for Musical Expression

We introduce two complementary OSC schemata for two contexts of use. The first is for the complete description of an OSC namespace: detailing the full set of messages each OSC-enabled system can receive or send, alongside choice metadata we deem necessary to make full use of each system’s description. The second context of use is a snapshot (partial or full) of the system’s state. We also relate our proposed schemata to the current state of the art, and how using these resolves issues that were left pending with previous research.
