An approach for creating structured Open Sound Control(OSC) messages by separating the addressing of node valuesand node properties is suggested. This includes a methodfor querying values and properties. As a result, it is possibleto address complex nodes as classes inside of more complextree structures using an OSC namespace. This is particularly useful for creating flexible communication in modularsystems. A prototype implementation is presented and discussed.
