Reality TV is known for having a blueprint. Competition shows hit all the same thematic beats, usually involving some sort of challenge and deliberation. There are also stock characters that reappear in every show like the villain or the comic relief. Other shows like the “Real Housewives” and “Kardashians” franchises follow more of a sitcom formula in which conflict is introduced, and the characters must figure out a solution. And as narratives repeat, the music does too.
“Survivor” composer David Vanacore says the blueprint for how reality sounds comes less from the CBS hit’s world music soundtrack and more from the orchestral scores of shows such as “Temptation Island” and “Joe Millionaire.” Vanacore worked on those shows in addition to other reality staples including “Big Brother” and “Hell’s Kitchen.” But since he created that quintessential sound, Vanacore has run into some frustration — that’s all anyone wants to hear. »
