Chañaral Ortega-Miranda (born 1973) is a Chilean composer of classical music.

Born in Arica, Chile, in 1973, Ortega-Miranda was exiled in France for the first six years of his life. After studying musical theory and composition in Buenos Aires from 1989 to 1993, he attended Sergio Ortega's composition classes at the École Normale de Musique de Paris until 2000. He then attended the Conservatoire de Strasbourg where he studied with Ivan Fedele. He participated in the annual Musiques à l'encre fraîche festivals from 1993 to 2000. He has also worked with Jonathan Harvey, Michael Jarrell, Zoltan Jeney and Peter Eötvos at the Acanthes Centre and participated in the composition session at the Fondation Royaumont: Voix Nouvelles with Brian Ferneyhough and Stefano Gervasoni.[1] Ortega-Miranda is a cofounder of the Association Syntono, Boulogne-Billancourt, which supports the composition and promotion of contemporary music.[2] "Q'inti", his award-winning composition for orchestral ensemble, is inspired by an Inca legend.[3]
