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