a rush of air through his teeth


Senior Member
Hi please explain to me what does "a rush of air through his teeth" mean here? Jules is a dangerous person and he is roughing the girl up.

"I kept my mouth shut, knowing that to talk would be dangerous. Jules laughed, a rush of air through his teeth. It sounded more sinister than anything I’d ever heard."

Thanks in advance

    Jules' laugh is like a rush of air between his teeth, that is I suppose a hissing sound.
