The "tsst" done by many is a bit like the finger pointing at the moon rather than the moon itself. George I think understands this as well as anyone, and I'm comfortable with having taken his lessons and made them mine.
Sometimes he breathes with an explosive technique. This isn't the explosive breathing that - in MY opinion - puts the cart before the horse. The best way to describe this comes from Scott Sonnon; he is "being breathed" by his technique. When you open the epiglottis and do core (body wave) contractions to drive your technique, it will happen without even trying.
